Development Bypasses World's Poorest

The MDGs have been improving the lives of millions around the world, but people in very poor regions have not been sharing in the progress, according to the UN

The United Nations (UN) says the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have been improving the lives of millions around the world, but people in very poor regions have not been sharing in the progress.

According to the annual report charting progress on the MDGs until the 2015 deadline, Aid money to the least developed countries fell 13 percent to US$26 billion in 2012.

UN goals to fight poverty and hunger, promote gender equality, and education, and widen access to water and health services were first outlined in 2000 and agreed to by UN members.
