Devex: The solutions to tackle global challenges are within our grasp
Winnie Byanyima, executive director at Oxfam International

“We can be proud of progress made since 198 world leaders signed up to the Millennium Development Goals.

We are at a unique moment in history. The eradication of poverty is within our reach, as is a more sustainable and equitable world…” (8/5).
