The costs and benefits of achieving the Millennium Development Goals


In line with the Monterrey Consensus, developing countries will need to expand their domestic resource mobilization to finance MDG-based poverty reduction strategies by drawing on government revenues, household contributions, and private sector investment to the greatest extent possible. In many low-income countries, and practically all Least Developed Countries, domestic resources alone will not be enough to meet the Goals.
