‘Can the MDGs provide a pathway to social justice? The challenge of intersecting inequalities’ (UN MDG Achievement Fund, New York)

The starting point for this report is that inequalities matter for the achievement of the MDGs. Inequalities matter at the macroeconomic level because they slow down the pace at which a given rate of growth translates into poverty reduction. They also matter for society at large because they generate high levels of social tensions, crime and conflict, with adverse effects for human wellbeing and progress.
