Absorption of Millennium Development Goals into Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers
The United Nations is a joined group of national governments whose imperative is to make the world a better place in which to live. The Millennium Development Goals is a major initiative in the UN to help develop public policy in international development. The goals are minimum development targets for every country to reach by 2015. In addition to meeting UN goals, developing countries that seek World Bank funding are required to write Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers. This paper analyzes the use of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals within the World Bank Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers, and finds correlation between these international government organizations in achieving development targets.
