Summary

The report Making It Happen assesses the state of progress on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Asia and the Pacific, and considers how we can move towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The report is based on a series of regional consultations with governments, civil society and academia on how we can embark on this new agenda in an inclusive way that extends the benefits of development to the most marginalized groups.

 

The report keeps with tradition in presenting a scorecard of achievements towards the MDGs for the region. It zeroes in on three key issues: technology, finance and statistics drawing from the expertise of UNDP, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).
