MDG 8 GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR DEVELOPMENT

Discussions pertaining to MDG 8 and specific countries, organizations, groups or individuals that work towards this goal will take place here. As delineated by the United Nations, the eighth and final Millennium Development Goal is: To Develop a Global Partnership for Development by 1) Addressing the special needs of the least developed countries, landlocked countries and small island developing states, 2) Developing further an open, rule-based, predictable, non-discriminatory trading and financial system, 3) Dealing comprehensively with developing countries' debt, and 4) Making available, in cooperation with the private sector, the benefits of new technologies, especially information and communications.

At the same time in todays world we observe so many conflicts between people and organizations representing different religions, political systems and values. How in your opinion we could overcome the challenges we face trying to build partnerships between people and organizations form different cultures? Explain your opinion in the context of the content of class materials for this week.

The following is the second article in a series of articles about access to energy and its impact on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Each week will introduce a different major region, outlining the current state of energy access in that region. Once each regional focus is examined, discussions will begin concerning steps that are being taken or could be taken to develop each region in a manner that suits the stakeholders of that region. I implore anyone who has ideas to get involved, voice your ideas, regardless of if they agree with my opinion or not, and let's begin a discussion on energy. I aim to learn from you, the readers, just as much as I aim to bring awareness to what I believe is one of the most pressing issues of the century.

These are my reflections on recent conversations about energy development and how it impacts the millennium development goals. I intend to write a weekly entry about the impact energy has on achieving the millennium development goals, both positively and negatively, and I thought this an appropriate start to the conversation. I say conversation because I look to start a dialogue on energy and development, and gain a greater understanding on how others view the importance of energy.
