Working to Attain the Millennium Development Goals

In its perspective planning policies, Sahara Manch has adopted the 8 Millennium Development Goals, as set forth in September 2000 at a convention represented by 189 countries including India. The development policies of several governments across the developing world have mirrored a legitimate commitment to the framework of the MDG and India has been no exception. Accordingly, the Planning Commission of India has evolved the National Development Goals (NDG) as part of its 10th and 11th Five Year Plans targets. This essentially based on the following 8 MDG targets:
  • Eradication of poverty;
  • Achievement of Universal primary education;
  • Promotion of gender equality;
  • Reduction of child mortality;
  • Improvement of maternal health;
  • Combating HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases;
  • Ensuring environmental sustainability; and
  • Developing a global partnership for development
