Britain's Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell will be pushing for
(according to DFID's website):
* An internationally agreed action agenda that sets out the steps that need to be taken to meet the MDGs by 2015;
* Collective international action to reduce the number of mothers and babies dying around the world and to fight to prevent the spread of diseases such as malaria;
* A strong focus on transparency and accountability and the need to maximise the impact of aid, to help ensure that every pound of British taxpayers’ money we spend demonstrates 100 pence of value;
* Agreement to work together to address issues of conflict, fragility and violence which are hindering progress.
I really like the muppet speaking at the #SocialGoodSummit :)
If we fail to reconcile technology with humanity ... we will forget that the purpose for all innovation is to make us better at being human, Buffett says #socialgood
@Astrid @AlertNet I enjoyed the muppet too.
Most of the time when people see something on line, their main reaction is to laugh because most of the stuff on the internet you have no sway over at all, so you just laugh and move on, research shows says Carrie James #socialgood
