Millennium Partners' Meeting

    Millennium Partners' Meeting

    Millennium Promise (MP) is organizing a meeting with its partners on September 19th, 2017 within the framework of the International Conference on Sustainable Development (ICSD) hosted by Columbia University in New York City, USA. The theme of ICSD for this year is “The World in 2050: Looking Ahead for Sustainable Development”.

    The meeting will provide a unique opportunity to discuss lessons learned and achievements over the ten years of implementation of the Millennium Villages Project (MVP). Millennium Promise will also present its new orientation and strategic plan with our diverse partners, from across the public and private sectors committed to supporting MP’s work to ending extreme poverty, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
