International Conference on
Education For Achieving Millennium Development Goals


The MDGs are a set of numerical and time-bound targets to measure achievements in human and social development. The likelihood of attaining the MDGs hasnot been usefully linked to the factors that influence MD indicators. This is necessary to address the question: what will it take to attain the MDGs?


It is only imperative that we take stock of the progress of our goals in order to make comprehensive review of successes, best practices, lessons drawn, challenges and opportunities, leading to concrete strategies for action.
