UN Millennium Project Reports

The UN Millennium Project was commissioned by then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 2002 to develop a concrete action plan for the world to reverse the grinding poverty, hunger and disease affecting billions of people. Headed by Professor Jeffrey Sachs, the Millennium Project was an independent advisory body and presented its final recommendations, Investing in Development: A Practical Plan to Achieve the Millennium Development Goals to the Secretary-General in January 2005.

Investing in Development proposed straightforward solutions for meeting the Millennium Development Goals by the 2015 deadline. The Millennium Villages Project, a ten-year integrated, rural development initiative that was implemented in 10 sub-Saharan African countries, was based on the recommendations of Investing in Development and 13 additional subject-specific Task Force Reports. The reports are available to download below.
