This monograph argues that by strongly supporting the UN Millennium Development Goals, Australia can by 2015 help save the lives of millions of children, rescue millions more from hunger and lift even more out of the most dire poverty. The two key ideas are that the world can largely eradicate hunger if it has the political will; and that it can do this relatively quickly, using the resources available in a concerted international effort over several decades.
