Report of the Secretary-General A/64/665: Keeping the promise - a forward-looking review to promote an agreed action agenda to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015

Source(s):  United Nations - Headquarters (UN)

This UN Secretary-General report presents information on progress made in achieving the Millennium Development Goals through a comprehensive review of successes, best practices and lessons learned, obstacles and gaps, and challenges and opportunities, leading to concrete strategies for action. It outlines emerging issues, such as the risk of disasters, and urges to reduce that risk and increase resilience to natural hazards in different development sectors using the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015, which commits Member States to make major efforts to reduce their risk of disaster by 2015.

The overall report consists of four main sections. The introduction examines the importance of the Millennium Declaration and how it drives the United Nations development agenda. The second section reviews progress on achieving the Millennium Development Goals, presenting both shortfalls and successes in the global effort. The third section sums up lessons learned to shape new efforts for accelerating progress to meet the Goals and identifies key success factors. The fourth and final section lists specific recommendations for action. The report calls for a new pact to accelerate progress in achieving the Goals in the coming years among all stakeholders, in a commitment towards equitable and sustainable development for all.
