This paper questions the methodology that is widely used to assess progress in implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a methodology that asks whether the targets are likely to be met

  • the MDGs have led to an unprecedented mobilisation of the UN system and the international community;
  • yet, the results show that there has not been a post-MDG acceleration of improvement in most countries for most indicators, and that many countries have in fact regressed for many of the indicators;
  • MDGs should be used as benchmarks of progress;
  • it makes more sense to focus on the progress of individual countries rather than the world as a whole, or even regions;
  • the metric for measuring progress is the rate of progress, not the likelihood of achieving the target;
  • the critical question for MDGs implementation is to understand where and why progress has accelerated and why and where it hasn’t gone faster.
The authors conclude that global goals are normative commitments that can be used in development policy as normative priorities, while using them as planning targets, particularly at the national level, can be highly misleading.
