The MDGs: Everyone’s Business

The MDGs: Everyone’s Business is a new report from UNDP’s Growing Inclusive Markets (GIM) Initiative covering 40 case studies and over 140 supporting institutions referenced by specific MDGs, released on 21 September 2010 in the framework of the United Nations Summit on the Millennium Development Goals.

Mostly based on GIM’s new set of case studies, Business Call to Action (BCtA) company initiatives, and UNDP’s own partnerships at local, regional and global levels, the report highlights inclusive business models – from large multinational companies and domestic companies to cooperatives, small and medium enterprises and non-profit organisations using business principles – and the key actors that support them – from policymakers to researchers and advocates, funders and resource providers.
