Sustainable Pathways to Attain the Millennium Development Goals: Assessing the Key Role of Water, Energy and Sanitation

This report by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) sets out to clarify the fundamental and urgent need for environmentally sustainable strategies for goal fulfillment, not only to avoid undermining long-term ability to improve the lives of the worldメs poorest, but also to tap the opportunities in making the environment work for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It presents environmentally sustainable ways and means to support global, regional and national implementation to attain the Goals.

The study complements the work by the Task Force for Environmental Sustainability of the Millennium Development Project, by showing the new direction investments in water and sanitation needs to take, and supports the ideas put forward by the Poverty and Environment Partnership (PEP) that poverty and environmental issues need to be addressed together. In addition, it argues that environmental sustainability aspects need to be an integral part of all eight MDGs.
