0.7 is the percentage of their national GDP that developed countries pledged to commit to international aid, in their commitment to the 2000 United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The author describes the program and notes that despite its agreement, the United States only devotes 0.13% of its GDP towards international aid. He suggests that a more serious covenantal approach is required, which also requires building public political support for international aid to fight hunger, poverty, and disease.
