Facts and figures: Minorities and the MDGs

Briefings |

The 2008 financial and food crises have jeopardized the realization of the MDGs and undermined the progress towards them which has been made to date. As a result of the crises, it is estimated that an additional 64 million people will be living in extreme poverty by the end of 2010, 260,000 children under the age of five could die unnecessarily in 2015, 350,000 more children will be unable to complete primary school in 2015, and 100 million more people will remain without access to safe drinking water.
