The Guardian’s award-winning global development site was launched in 2010 to provide special focus on the millennium development goals — the eight targets set in 2000 by the United Nations Millennium Declaration with the aim of improving the lives of the world’s poorest people by 2015.
The site, which hosts comment from a range of voices around the globe, alongside news, features, debate, data and student resources, is made possible by part-funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The site is editorially independent of any sponsorship.
