This report is about learning from country experience in implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It advances a set of performance priorities that are clearly identified from global development experience. These priorities highlight specific approaches and types of action needed to accelerate progress on the MDGs. They embrace the work of all development stakeholders but are most concerned with actions at country and field level.
The report is part of preparations for the September 2010 high-level plenary meeting of the General Assembly. The collective purpose of these preparations is to bring together all stakeholders to help world leaders gathering at the Summit to review progress, identify gaps, and commit to a concrete action agenda to achieve the MDGs.
