The Millennium Development Goals

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are considered as the most successful global anti-poverty campaign in history, bringing together governments and development partners to achieve a set of indicators. The MDGs emerged as the principal means of implementing the Millennium Declaration, signed at the United Nations Millennium Summit held in New York in September 2000.

As a signatory to the Millennium Declaration, Uzbekistan is fulfilling its promises to address the challenges outlined in the MDGs. The Government recognizes the relevance and acuteness of these challenges in the national development context. The Government, in collaboration with donor community and the civil society, has embarked on the process of formulating its own national MDG targets and indicators. The set of eight national MDGs are:

MDG 1. Improve living conditions and reduce malnutrition

MDG 2. Improve the quality of education in primary and secondary schools

MDG 3. Promote gender equality and empower women

MDG 4. Reduce child mortality

MDG 5. Improve maternal health

MDG 6. Combat HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis

MDG 7. Ensure environmental sustainability

MDG 8. Strengthen Uzbekistan’s global partnerships for development

The Second National MDG Report is being prepared within the joint initiative of the United Nations and the Government of Uzbekistan. CER, together with the sub-working groups, consisted of the ministries and government agencies, takes part in preparation of the report.
