Open in a separate window These targets are both global and local, adapted to each country to meet specific needs. They provide a framework for the whole international community to work together towards a common goal. If these goals are achieved, world poverty will be reduced by half, millions of lives will be saved, and billions of people will benefit from the global economy in a more sustainable environment 2. Furthermore, the MDGs are inter-dependent and largely influence each other.

The International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty, in its post thematic consultation document on MDG 69 states "The major limitation of the MDGs by was the lack of political will to implement due to the lack of ownership of the MDGs by the most affected constituencies".
Without such accountability, no substantial change in national and international policies can be expected.
In some countries, primary enrollment increased at the expense of achievement levels. In some cases, the emphasis on primary education has negatively affected secondary and post-secondary education. Furthermore, countries with the highest levels of these conditions typically have the least reliable data collection.
The study also argued that without accurate measures, it is impossible to determine the amount of progress, leaving MDGs as little more than a rhetorical call to arms. With an increase in the quantity and quality of healthcare systems in developing countries, more data could be collected.The UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were very ambitious and are absolutely central to the whole notion of public impact.
The Millennium Summit, held at the UN’s headquarters in New York, was an opportunity to look forward to the new challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals. A year later, eight Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs, were established as part of the effort. Among them was a goal that called for achieving universal primary education.
