About The MDG Achievement Fund (MDG-F)

The MDG Achievement Fund (MDG-F) was committed to eradicating poverty and inequality and changing people’s lives around the world. Set up in 2007 with a generous contribution from the Government of Spain to the United Nations system, we worked together with and in support of citizens and their organizations as well as governments to implement programmes that helped advance the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) worldwide.

Our aim was to trigger real change for the better in people’s lives and to influence public policy, making it more responsive to the needs of the poor. We supported 130 programmes in 50 countries around the world, piloting examples and supporting national programmes that could be scaled up into national policy frameworks. Our areas of action ranged from child nutrition to youth employment, women’s empowerment and culture and development.

All our programmes were defined by national priorities and were the product of an extensive and collaborative formulation process that brought together more than 25 UN agencies and an even larger number of ministries and civil society groups.Visit website »
