Millennium Development Goals Report 2015

Due to the efforts behind the MDGs, extreme poverty has declined significantly over the last two decades, with most of the progress achieved since 2000.  In 1990, nearly half of the population in the developing world lived on less than $1.25 a day; that proportion dropped to 14 per cent in 2015.

The MDG report is available online in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Russian and can be accessed via the following link: http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/news.shtml
