The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are a United Nations partnership initiative to eradicate extreme poverty and other forms of disadvantage and human crises by 2015.
This conference, hosted by the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) & Institute for Human Security, La Trobe University, will take place from 30.11 - 1.12 2009 in Melbourne and will look at what needs to be done to ensure we do not lose momentum as we near the mid-point of the MDGs. The key concepts of learning, innovation and partnerships will shape this conference; new ideas, success stories, challenges and solutions are invited. An important feature of this conference is that it brings together a wide range of stakeholders, such as community representatives, academics, professionals from inside and outside the traditional development field, the corporate sector and indeed many others who may ordinarily not think of themselves as concerned with development to make change happen.
