Strenghtening the Global Partnership for Development in a Time of Crisis- 2009 Report

UNDP, 2009


Further progress has been made towards fulfilling the promises embodied in the Millennium Development Goal 8. However, the global Partnership for Development has suffered important setbacks, most of which have arisen from the current state of the world economy which is experiencing its severest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930’s. In the countdown to 2015, urgent responses are needed to bridge the existing implementation gaps to make good on the promises made to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

The 2009 issue of the report by the United Nations Development Goals Gap ask Force identifies these gaps in details and provides recommendations to all major stakeholders on how to address these gaps.

The present report was prepared by the MDG Gap Task Force which was created by the Secretary- General of the United Nations to improve the monitoring of the MDG 8 by leveraging inter-agency- coordination. More than 20 United Nations agencies are represented in the Task Force, including the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, as well as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the World Trade Organization.
