The MDGs and the Fifth National Development Plan in Zambia – Workshop Report

In February 2007 Micah Challenge Zambia hosted a conference in Ndola to bring Pastors and Christian leaders together to discuss progress on meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the newly launched Fifth National Development Plan (FNDP). The workshop successfully facilitated a forum for Christian leaders and Pastors to identify issues affecting them as a Christian community, and discussed the challenges that the evangelical community were experiencing in relating to the MDGs and the FNDP.

Here is the report for your encouragement – MDGs & FNDP Report (brief) PDF (you will need a PDF viewer to view this file – download one for free from Adobe reader or Sumatra PDF).
