In my previous editorial, I spoke about the need to make better nutrition for the world’s poor a reality, particularly in light of the commitments made by world leaders in September 2000 to reduce extreme poverty and attain the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of reducing poverty, hunger and mortality by 2015. As the MDG target date draws ever nearer, in this issue I would like to address the ongoing discussion on how to achieve this in practice. It is time not just to talk the talk, but to walk the walk. Much effort has been made by a wide range of organizations to make real progress in meeting these international goals. Yet, while a number of targets have been met, or almost met, other MDGs are still far from being attained. Such uneven progress across the globe, where some but not all regions have achieved substantial success, weighs heavily on those countries that lag behind. If we are to obtain concrete and lasting results by 2015, we need real leadership and the full engagement of everyone involved. Leadership not only creates a vision, it also encourages and empowers people to buy into that vision. Translating a vision into reality, however, requires defined roles and responsibilities with clear operational structures. This is where good governance comes into play.
