Publications - Millennium Development Goals

  • The 2012 Human Development Report for Africa explores hunger and food security issues. It argues for action in agricultural productivity, nutrition, access to food, and empowerment of the rural poor.

  • The publication is the outcome of the 2012 Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.

  • The Africa MDG Report notes that progress toward the MDGs is continuing, but that the food, fuel, and financial crises over the past few years, coupled with the instability in North Africa in 2011, may impact on the pace of advancement. This calls for efforts to be redoubled to preserve gains and ensure success.

  • This 2010 MDG Status Report provides the implementation status on each of the MDGs in the country and indicates trends over the last decade in terms of the progress attained in socio-economic development.
