ANNUAL MINISTERIAL REVIEW: PROGRESS ON INTERNATIONAL GOALS

Each year the United Nations Economic and Social Council holds an annual ministerial review. As part of this process, various countries volunteer to share about progress made on national levels in implementing international goals, including the Millennium Development Goals. Among them this year were Brazil and Kenya, two countries in which the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur minister. Both countries focused on specific initiatives by which they have promoted full employment and productive capacity, essential for achieving poverty eradication, and acknowledged the many difficulties still ahead.
