We shall

· Work closely with other donors and development agencies to build partnerships with developing countries to strengthen the commitment to the elimination of poverty, and use our influence to help mobilise the political will to achieve the international development targets.

· Pursue these targets in partnership with poorer countries who are also committed to them.

· Put in place new ways of working with the UK private and voluntary sectors, and the research community, towards the international development targets, including transforming the Commonwealth Development Corporation into a dynamic public/private partnership.

· Measure the effectiveness of our efforts, alongside others, against the targets, including the aim of halving the proportion of the world’s population living in extreme poverty by 2015.
