Govts Urged to Put Kids at Heart of New Goals

UNICEF says despite global progress on achieving the MDGs, unequal opportunities have left nearly 600 million children living in extreme poverty

The Children's Rights & Emergency Relief Organisation (UNICEF) says despite global progress on achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), unequal opportunities have left nearly 600 million children living in extreme poverty on less than US$1.25 a day.

The agency states that millions of the world's poorest children are denied a fair start in life and many more will be left behind unless they are put at the centre of new development goals for 2030.

World leaders are due to adopt later this year a set of new development objectives, such as ending poverty, reducing child mortality and tackling climate change, to replace eight expiring MDGs.
