The Millennium Development Goals

In 2000, world leaders agreed to the creation of the Millennium Declaration committed to the reduction of extreme poverty and the achievement of human development and human rights. In 2001, eight separate goals were formulated with the aim of arriving at the above purpose. MGDs and Human Rights have certain key differences between them including scope, target groups and legal status, the inextricable link between the two is indisputable as both respect the dignity and equality of all humans.

AEQUITAS works towards the integration of human rights in the implementation of MDGs through the adoption of a human rights based approach to development.
