The 2010 MDG Summit concluded with the adoption of a global action plan, "Keeping the Promise: United to Achieve the Millennium Development Goals " and the announcement of a number of initiatives against poverty, hunger and disease.

CEB strongly welcomed the Outcome of the 2010 High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals. CEB agreed to examine how best to bring together the different policy strands in an integrated approach to contribute to the urgent action required over the coming years in supporting individual country efforts to reach the Goals.

The work of the United Nations system in that regard focused on efforts to support Member States in the implementation of the Outcome. Under the leadership of the Secretary-General, CEB has come together in support of greater accountability and coherence in tracking the commitments of the Millennium Development Goals. At its first regular session 2011, CEB agreed on an integrated implementation framework to ensure that the delivery of official commitments on the Millennium Development Goals will be monitored publicly on an electronic platform.
