Cooperation Can Accelerate MDG Progress

Devex: Teamwork crucial to accelerate progress on MDGs
Magdy Martínez-Solimán, U.N. Development Program’s deputy assistant administrator and director ad interim of the Bureau for Development Policy

“…While we expect gains to be significant, it is clear that the unfinished work of the MDGs will continue to be a major part of the new global development agenda that includes Sustainable Development Goals. …[B]y cooperating and directing our resources and knowledge to where they can have the biggest impact, we can do much to accelerate progress. We may not achieve every goal in every country by the deadline, but our continued progress lays a solid foundation for the post-2015 development agenda, and it is a promise of what can be done when we all work together” (8/13).
