In September 2000 world leaders gathered at a United Nations meeting to pledge to eradicate world poverty. They agreed on a set of eight targets, called the Millennium Development Goals, to be met by 2015. This case study is designed to indicate the extent to which progress has been made in relation to aid, trade and security since the G8 Summit meeting in 2005, to explore the means by which poverty can really become history, and to discuss the managerial and organizational problems and challenges for the achievement of such an objective.
