Millennium Development Goals (MDG)

In September 2000, Tuvalu signed the UN Millennium Declaration as part of its commitment to combating poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation and discrimination against women. Poverty reduction is the overarching theme of the MDGs and the Government of Tuvalu and relevant stakeholders are committed to continue to work in partnership with development partners to promote the livelihood of the people of Tuvalu.

The content of this National MDG Report reflects views and opinions of participants to the SPC/UN MDG Task Force national consultation, in integrating the MDG framework into Tuvaluís National Development Plan, in February 2005. Participants included Cabinet Ministers, civil servants, non-government organizations and civil society, various community groups and most of the stakeholders involved in the achievement of the MDGs.

The report generally reflects Tuvaluís progress on the MDGs. It also highlights some of the challenges that a small island country such as Tuvalu faces in its efforts towards the achievement of the MDGs, specifically in relocating our limited resources to meet our national priorities aligned with the MDGs.
