USAID Marks 1,000 Day Milestone Until 2015 MDG Target Date With Digital Conversations

“On April 5, USAID joined U.N. Foundation’s Momentum 1000 and millions around the globe in a digital rally to mark the 1,000 day milestone until the 2015 target date to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs): A promise made to free people from extreme poverty and extend hope and opportunity to the millions living in developing regions,” the agency’s “IMPACTblog” writes. “In commemoration of the April 5 milestone, USAID hosted a Twitter chat with Policy Director Steve Feldstein, who discussed USAID efforts to meet President Obama’s [call] to end extreme poverty within the next two decades,” the blog notes. “In addition, USAID participated in a Google Hangout, hosted by U.S. News and GAIN, to discuss progress made on global food security and nutrition as well as overall efforts to create a more nourished, food secure world,” the blog writes, adding the agency also “hosted a Twitter chat with global health adviser Kamiar Khajavi on USAID’s work with meeting MDG #4, which is to reduce child mortality.” The blog provides a link to a Storify feed of the digital conversation (4/9).
