The UN Development Programme (UNDP) has prepared the report, “Beyond the Midpoint: Achieving the Millennium Development Goals,” to review the extent of progress made towards the MDGs as well as assess what it will take to accelerate progress towards the goals around the World. Thirty country-level assessments and extensive consultations with stakeholders were undertaken to discern the factors which influence MDG progress in a country, as well as understand what has worked, what has not, and why.
The findings reveal that there are four key areas which shape MDG achievement at the country level:
-Policy choices and their coherence
-Governance and capacity deficits
