MDGs play a key role in targeting poverty reduction and development in the Eastern Caribbean. MDGs were created as a global approach towards achieving a better world, and not all of the goals are directly relevant to the needs of the countries of the Eastern Caribbean. Indeed, selected goals have already been achieved or will be achievedby 2015 in some of the countries, while others have never been a burning issue in the region. Particular attention has been paid to the first Millennium Goal, the most urgent one: halving extreme poverty and hunger by 2015. With regard to the global ideas, relevant MDGs must now be identified in each region concerned.
