This September, the United Nations will host the largest gathering of heads of state since the Millennium Summit in the year 2000. At their last Summit, 189 world leaders pledged to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, in order to eradicate extreme poverty and its root causes by the year 2015. The Goals represent a roadmap to finally wipe extreme poverty from the face of the earth once and for all. With just five years left until the deadline, the upcoming summit in September represents the international communitys last chance to develop breakthrough plans to achieve the Goals. We must tell heads of state in no uncertain terms that we expect them to deliver on their promises. What do you want world leaders to do at the summit in September to get on track to achieve the Goals by 2015?
