"Our stake in development"

The Millennium Development Goals are eight international development goals that the 189 United Nations member states (plus a broad range of international organizations) agreed in 2001 to achieve by the year 2015. They include cutting levels of extreme poverty in half, substantially reducing child mortality rates, fighting epidemic diseases, and promoting global socioeconomic development.

We want to use this blog to sample different people opinion about the performance of thier home government in the efforts to achieving these MDGs. We want to asks people from around the world to create and upload their stories or videos stating their name, their home country, and a specific request that their own government do more to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Our stake in development is a tracking system developed by DEDERC and partners to monitor progress at all levels and provide the needed push for our government to achieve more. If you also think that your home country is not doing enough, please state those areas of negelect and issues you wants us to address and recommend.
