Millennium Development Goals - Progress and Prospects c/o The Communication Initiative Network

Here c/o The Communication Initiative Network is Drum Beat 479 which addresses progress and prospects of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Publication Date: February 9, 2009

This issue of the Drum Beat explores communication-centred thinking and action designed to address the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) - 8 goals set in 2000 to be achieved by 2015 that respond to what some consider to be the world's main development challenges. In 2005 and 2006, The Communication Initiative (The CI) published a series of Drum Beat issues focused on communication intersections with each of the MDGs, as well as a "year in review" issue at the end of each series. As we enter 2009, having passed the halfway point in the quest to accomplish the Goals, the selections below examine progress by highlighting just a sliver of the statistics, interventions, and strategies drawing on communication to make a real impact.
