MDG report 2015: assessing progress in Africa toward the Millennium Development Goals

This report presents innovative policies and progammes which countries have adopted to accelerate progress on the MDGs. The aim is to help document policy innovations for SDG implementation, but also keep the focus on the unfinished business of the MDGs as countries and the global community make the transition to implementation of the post-2015 Development Agenda.

The report maintains that achieving sustainable development will be impossible unless African nations and communities are resilient, able to anticipate, shape and adapt to the many shocks and challenges they face, including climate-related disasters, health crises and conflict. It notes how persistent conflicts in Central Africa and unfavourable weather conditions such as droughts and flooding in the Sahel, the Horn of Africa and Southern Africa continue to exert pressure on food security and nutrition. It concludes that investments in prevention and preparedness now will minimize risk and future costs.
