Changing Lives: The MDG-F's Impact


The MDG Achievement Fund has worked in 50 countries around the world to reduce inequalities and spur progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. Nine million people across five continents have benefited from our programmes to lessen poverty and child malnutrition, increase gender equality, improve communities’ access to safe water, give a voice to indigenous people, strengthen resilience to climate change and empower women and youth.

Our 130 programmes are funded by a generous contribution from the Government of Spain to the United Nations system, and implemented jointly by 27 UN agencies and thousands of local and national governments, civil society organizations and — most importantly — citizens themselves.
