The MDG Achievement Fund has worked in 50 countries around the world to reduce inequalities and spur progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. Through 130 programmes across five continents, we have helped to reduce 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.

Millions of people around the globe have benefitted from our initiatives, 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.
