Achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Africa
(Seminar Report No. 44)

The MDGs, which were signed by 189 countries, including 53 African states, in 2000, set eight benchmarks to: eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; achieve universal primary education; promote gender equality and empower women; reduce child mortality; improve maternal health; combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases; ensure environmental sustainability; and develop a global partnership for development by the year 2015. This CCR seminar report which is based on a policy research seminar held in Cape Town from 13-14 May 2013 assesses critically the progress that the continent has made towards achieving the MDGs, and to support African institutions in shaping the post-2015 development agenda.
