Millennium Development Goals: Assessing and Forecasting Progress

Project name/title
Millennium Development Goals: Assessing and Forecasting Progress
Year:
2004
Theme:
Poverty, Inequality and Well-being
Abstract:
Achievement of the MDG goals by 2015 is an ambitious undertaking. The donor community is now mobilizing resources behind the goals, and efforts to implement the goals are now underway at national and international levels. It is inevitable that progress in achieving the goals will vary considerably across developing regions, and indeed within individual countries. Activities to monitor the achievement of the goals both globally and nationally are now being put in place by international agencies. This is a highly demanding task, particularly in the area of collecting the relevant data which will require much faster progress in building the capacity of national statistical agencies.
