The report urges developing and industrialized countries to work to foster sustainable growth that favours the poor and provide more resources for health, education, gender equality, and environmentally sustainable development worldwide. The report focuses on seven interrelated development goals, which would eventually evolve into the Millennium Development Goals.
The report is available in the following languages:
The four organisations also issued a joint press release to announce the publication of the report.
