The Millennium Development Goals and the City

World Habitat Day 2005 was held on 3 October 2005, under the theme – The Millennium Development Goals and the City. This theme was selected to remind all of us that in the year 2000, world leaders meeting at the dawn of the new Millennium, committed themselves to launch a concerted attack on poverty, illiteracy, hunger, unsafe water, disease and urban and environmental degradation by adopting a set of eight goals.

The main celebration was held in Jakarta, Indonesia.
