Secret Service agents, diplomatic entourages, blocked off UN Headquarters, security checkpoints, sharpshooters on roofs, limousines speeding by, sirens blaring – all signaled the arrival of 140 heads of state for the Millennium Development Goals Summit. World leaders considered progress made in the ten years since the MDGs were passed and assessed the challenges still ahead to reach the goals by the target date of 2015.

This three-day high level Summit:

• Recognized progress made on the MDGs by countries in all regions of the world through cooperation, partnerships, actions and solidarity

• Recognized multiple and interrelated crises, including financial and economic, food security, and climate change, which have increased vulnerabilities and inequalities, especially in developing countries

• Created a detailed action plan for accelerating progress in each of the goal areas
