Last week's Wednesday Lowy Lecture guest was John McArthur, Senior Advisor and until recently CEO of Millennium Promise, the leading international NGO committed to supporting the achievement of the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). You can hear John's full speech to the Lowy Institute here.

John has played a major role in shaping the international approach to the MDGs, which came out of the pledge made by 189 countries, including Australia, in 2000 to halve global poverty and improve living conditions for the world's poor by 2015. I was able to meet with John after the lecture to ask him if he thinks the world is on track to meet the goals.
