Human Development Report 2003

Millennium Development Goals: A compact among nations to end human poverty

The range of human development in the world is vast and uneven, with astounding progress in some areas amidst stagnation and dismal decline in others. Balance and stability in the world will require the commitment of all nations, rich and poor, and a global development compact to extend the wealth of possibilities to all people.

Excerpt from Statement by the Taoiseach, Mr. Bertie Ahern, T.D.

The 2003 Human Development Report focuses on the eight Goals agreed at the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000. The Goals deal with the eradication of poverty and hunger, access to primary education, child mortality, HIV/AIDS and other key development challenges and include specific targets to be achieved by 2015.

I still recall the optimism and the shared sense of commitment, which pervaded the Millennium Summit. The world leaders gathered in New York at the Summit were determined that these common Goals could only be achieved through common action, with the United Nations at the centre of this collective effort.

The 2003 Human Development Report includes many grim statistics. It is a
powerful reminder of how unequal our world is, and how for a number of countries, particularly in Africa, the situation is worsening.

Fifty four countries are poorer now than they were in 1990. At the current pace of development, countries in sub Saharan Africa will not reach the Goals for poverty eradication until 2147, and for child mortality until 2167. The figures for AIDS and hunger are heading up, not down, across the continent. In seven countries in Africa, one in five children will not live to see their 5th birthday.

Against this background, we face the shameful fact that Overseas Development Assistance fell during the 1990s, by nearly one third on a per capita basis in sub Saharan Africa. And this was at a time when the rich world became considerably richer. The richest 5% of the world's people now receive 114 times the income of the poorest 5%.

I agree with the Human Development Report's view that if the Goals are to be met, we need to pay particular attention to Goal number 8, which calls for a global partnership for development. And I agree that such a partnership imposes responsibilities on both sides.
