DSDS 2006: Driving thought leadership and stimulating action
The emphasis on linkages across MDGs will be a consistent theme running through discussions and debates at DSDS 2006. The success of the eight MDGs would dramatically alter the condition of the world’s disadvantaged, yet their effectiveness is crucially dependent on radical, innovative, and workable collaborations between stakeholders and technologies.
