MDG Progress Chart 2007

The Millennium Declaration established 2015 as the target date for achieving most of the MDGs, with 1990 generally used as a baseline. The Chart shows progress as of June 2007, based on data for selected indicators in each of the eight Goals. The assessment is based on an analysis of trends between 1990 and the latest year for which data are available. Given the time lag between collecting data and analysing them, the latest information available for some of the indicators is from 2004 or 2005.

Africa and the Millennium Development Goals - 2007 Update


This newly published brief notes that at the midway point between the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals in 2000 and the 2015 target date to achieve them, sub-Saharan Africa is not on track to achieve any of the Goals.

Although there have been major gains in several areas and the Goals remain achievable in most African nations, even the best governed countries on the continent have not been able to make sufficient progress in reducing extreme poverty in its many forms, some of which are outlined in the brief.

The brief includes excerpts of statistical analysis and charts from the Millennium Development Goals Report 2007, scheduled to launch later this month, and is based on the most up-to-date and comprehensive statistics available on global and regional MDG progress.
