The MDGs commit the international community to an expanded vision of
development, one that vigorously promotes human development as the key to
sustaining social and economic progress in all countries, and recognises the
importance of creating a global partnership for development. The goals have
been commonly accepted as a framework for measuring development
progress.
It is reported that many of the targets of the MDGs were first set out by
international conferences and summits held in the 1990s. They were later
compiled and became known as the International Development Goals. In
September 2000 the member states of the United Nations unanimously
adopted the Millennium Declaration. Following consultations among
international agencies, including the World Bank, the IMF, the OECD, and the
specialised agencies of the United Nations, the General Assembly recognised
the MDGs as part of the road map for implementing the Millennium Declaration.
