Millennium Development Goals endorsed by the United Nations and its
member countries, the World Bank, and a host of partner organizations.
These goals, which focus on development and the elimination of poverty,
serve as the agenda for international development efforts.
Statistics help us understand the events that trigger a crisis and
measure its impact. Along with this year's 91 data tables,each
section of the World Development Indicators 2009 has an
introduction that shows statistics in action, describing the history of
the current global crisis, its effect on developing economies, and the
challenges they face.
