About The MDG Achievement Fund (MDG-F)
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 »
