This report, A Future Within Reach 2008, on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has been released by ESCAP, ADB and the UN Development Programme’s (UNDP) Millennium Development Goals Initiative team, based in Colombo.
It is the third in a series of regional reports on the Millennium Development Goals in the Asia-Pacific region. It assesses the prospects of reaching the goals and targets, highlighting the potential gaps and indicating how these can be filled.
Also, it looks at the potential for adding value to national initiatives through broader international partnerships through which the United Nations and other international organizations 'deliver as one'. (UN & ADB, 2009)
