The world has the resources, has made the commitment and should have the
motivation to finance the MDGs. The big question is : how to do it and
it is related to the three major dimensions of the financing issues :
- Estimating the costs of achieving the MDGs
- Mobilization of necessary resources
- Efficiency in resource use
Achievement of MDGs is not the sufficient condition for development,
peace and security in the world, but it is definitely a necessary
condition. The world has the resources, has made the commitment and
should have the motivation to achieve these goals. Let us hope that it
starts acting on it without any delay. Otherwise, time, instead of being
the best healer, can be the best killer in this case.
