Pursuing the MDGs through Local Government: Naoros Village

Winner of the Global Forum on Local Development Video Contest, the video below shows local government in action. The video depicts the direct link between Millennium Development Goals and locally planned, led, and implemented initiatives in Naoros village.

The mobilization of the local populace in developing irrigation infrastructure directly pursues MDG #1- eradicating extreme poverty.

The health programs shown enhance the role of people by building the knowledge, skills, and participation to pursue MDG #5 and #6 – improving maternal health and combating HIV/AIDS and other diseases.
