Millennium Development Goals by 2015


Millennium Development Goals by 2015


This map provides an assessment by region of progress towards meeting the UN’s Millenium_Development_Goals, which were originally defined in 2001.

For each major region of the developing world, the map indicates the status of each of the 16 targets defined in the 2005 Progress Report of the UN Statistics Division.

The “Millennium Development Goals”” were intended to define a set of reachable and realistic targets addressing various areas of development, such as the reduction of household poverty.

The assessment is based on the findings of the “”Millennium Project””, a UN research initiative. “”Sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania, Western- and Southern Asia are showing the least of amount of progress and are not expected to meet the targets with the current trends.””.
