The exhibit “Millennium Villages Project (MVP) – A photographic essay on sustainable development” is on display until 27 December 2016.
This photo exhibition focuses on four projects implemented by the Millennium Villages in Ethiopia, Ghana, Rwanda, and Senegal. Led by Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, the Millennium Villages Project contributed to eliminating extreme poverty in ten- African countries over ten years (2005-2015) thanks to its integrated approach to rural development. By showing that lives can be improved through small investments in agriculture, health, education, infrastructure, and business development, MVP provides a blueprint for future sustainable development projects.
The exhibition is organized by the Earth Institute at Columbia University and VII Agency. It is endorsed by the Office of the Secretary-General.
