‘Targeting Millennium Development Goals’ is a reference book for high school and university students. It aims to provide detailed information regarding Millennium Development Goals, using interactive question and answer games. Like many other countries, Uzbekistan has developed a national program designed to help the nation achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
This is the first National Millennium Development Goals Report for Uzbekistan, prepared jointly by the Government of Uzbekistan and the United Nations Country Team.
