Edited by Tom Bigg
Opinion paper, 2 pages
IIED's conference 'How to make poverty history: The central role of local organisations in meeting the MDGs' brought together 58 people from 23 countries for two days of lively debate in December 2005 (see also the background publication for the conference at www.meetingthemdgs.org). Nine clear messages stem from the conference, with major implications for the actions and choices persuad by governments, donor agencies and a range of non-state actors, including the private sector.
