Assessing Progress in Africa towards the Millennium Development Goals Report 2011
This is the latest edition of the widely read UNDP reports analyzing the progress (or lack thereof) on the African continent towards achieving the MDGs.
Recent evidence suggests that progress in Africa in meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the target date is picking up although a lot remains to be done. Significant progress has been reported for indicators such as universal primary education and gender equality. Ghana, for example, is reported to be on track to meet the target of halving poverty by 2015. And there has been significant reduction in the prevalence of HIV.
This report, the sixth in the series, presents progress made since the last report, discusses how far the continent still needs to travel, at what speed, and how it can achieve set goals.
