Millenium Goals

In the year 2000, the Dominican Republic became a signatory of the Millennium Declaration, in which signatory countries agree to engage in achieving the Millennium Development Objectives of the United Nations by 2015.

The PNUD, in collaboration with the Dominican Government, through the Presidential Commission for the Millennium Objectives and Sustainable development (COPDES), constantly monitors the progress achieved by the country in relation to these objectives.

The Dominican Republic forms part of seven pilot countries within the United Nations Millennium Project, directed by Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, Director of The Earth Institute, at Columbia University. The Dominican Republic is the only Latin American Country in this pilot project, and has completed an Evaluation of Needs and Cost Analysis for the ODM.
