Asia-Pacific in a Race Against Time to Meet the MDGs
9 May 2012
With the 2015 deadline approaching for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Asia and the Pacific is in a race against time. United Nations Under-Secretary General, Dr. Noeleen Heyzer, explains that many off-track countries can still meet the deadline, with a redoubling of effort in a big final push to 2015 on the MDGs. The biggest obstacle to this effort is the extent of disparities between and within countries - with many people, even in the same country, living in different worlds.
