The MDG Monitor Website

The Millenium Development Goals or MDGs are in its midterm last year, and this year, 2008 we begin the second half of its implementation. The truth is most countries are far from reaching their targets especially those in Africa which need it the most.

The MDG Monitor shows how countries are progressing in their efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). With the 2015 target date fast approaching, it is more important than ever to understand where the goals are on track, and where additional efforts and support are needed, both globally and at the country level.

The MDG Monitor is designed as a tool for policymakers, development practitioners, journalists, students and others to:

TRACK progress through interactive maps and country-specific profiles

LEARN about countries' challenges and achievements and get the latest news

SUPPORT organizations working on the MDGs around the world
