The United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) is an inter-agency programme of the United Nations mandated to promote and develop constructive relations between the United Nations and civil society organizations.
In September 2010, the High-Level Plenary Meeting on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG Summit) adopted an Outcome Document “ Keeping the Promise: United to Achieve the Millennium Development Goals ” (document A/65/L.1 ) – in which Member States set out an action agenda in order to reach the Goals by 2015. During the Summit, announcements of new commitments and initiatives to accelerate MDG progress were made by a wide range of stakeholders. A matrix is now available that provides a compilation of many of the initiatives and commitments made during the MDG Summit. It includes both old (such as the Gleneagles G-8) and new commitments, as well as commitments made by developing countries to prepare MDG Strategies.
More detailed information can be found on the MDG Summit website, including General Assembly statements, reports from the high‐level roundtables, observer statements, as well as the compilation report on the Partnership Events.Archive of this section
