The UN General Assembly adopted eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2000. Progress to date has saved lives, ensured that children attend school, reduced maternal deaths, expanded opportunities for women, increased access to clean water, and freed many people from disease. However, much remains to be done to empower women and girls, promote sustainable development, and protect the most vulnerable from the devastating effects of conflicts, natural disasters, and rising food and energy costs. The Rio+20 summit in June 2012 has sparked a focus on sustainable development.
Civil society organizations, NGOs, private sector philanthropists, voluntary associations, and faith-based organizations can be valuable partners with governments and inter-governmental organizations in advancing the MDGs and promoting sustainable development. The United Nations recognizes interreligious and intercultural dialogue as an important tool for fulfilling the MDGS (UN GA 66.266)
