Using numerous findings by organizations and private groups during the United Nations’ 2005 International Year of Sport and Physical Education (IYSPE), along with descriptions of progress in the five years since the IYSPE, this document connects sport-based initiatives with the increased push to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

While analyzing the economic impacts of major sporting events including the Olympics and FIFA World Cup, along with measuring the successes of physical education and camps, coaching seminars and community outreach programs, this article explains how sport-based programs can help achieve each of the eight MDGs.

In order to achieve the MDGs, the implementation of sport-based initiatives is essential for success.
