In 2000, the United Nations member states and international organizations agreed to target eight Millennium Development Goals for the year 2015. Increasing human capital (education and health), combating gender inequality and eradicating extreme poverty are among the high priorities. Another objective of the Millennium declaration is to set-up a global partnership for development that addresses the special needs of vulnerable groups, including the least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and developing small island states. This requires industrialized countries to conduct more development-friendly trade, debt relief and development assistance policies.
