Participatory Monitoring for Accountability - Post-2015 Consultation Report

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) addressed the fact that not enough recognition had been given to some of the world's main challenges: poverty reduction, education, maternal health, gender equality, child mortality, HIV/AIDS and other diseases.

The MDGs were instrumental in mobilzing the international development community around simple, clear and measurable goals. Shortfalls however, have occurred not because the MDGs are unreachable, or because time is too short, but because of unmet commitments, inadequate resources and a lack of focus and accountability.
