As a part of development cooperation initiative, certain Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were unanimously identified and endorsed upon by the international community at the United Nations Millennium Summit (2000). MDGs are supposed to serve the cause of sustainable development by ensuring the growth of parallel infrastructures and inclusiveness. MDGs can not only be achieved through preferential policies of treatment and collective participation procedures, it can also be achieved through empowering the disabled people who are unfortunately found at the bottom by MDG indicators. In the following table, there are examples on the status of disabled people in respect of each of the goals. The third column of the following table mentions examples on how infrastructure improvements facilitate the achievement of the goals and enhance the creation of enabling environments.
