In September 2005, the United Nations will host a Millennium +5 Summit to evaluate the progress towards the United Nations Millennium Declaration adopted by over 150 Heads of State at the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000. Leaders also resolved to meet a number of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which include halving the proportion of people living in poverty and hunger by 2015. As part of the preparatory process, the General Assembly held Hearings with Civil Society, NGOs and the Private Sector from 24-25 June 2005.
