Report Explores Fragile States’ Progress In Meeting MDGs, Prospects For Success On SDGs

Center for American Progress: RELEASE: Will the Sustainable Development Goals Leave Fragile States Behind?
The Center for American Progress and Save the Children released a new report that finds although the MDGs have seen broad success, “the risk is increasing that the most vulnerable groups in fragile and conflict-affected states will be left behind by” the Sustainable Development Goals. The report “explores the records of 55 fragile states in meeting the current Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs, and compares the record of these different countries against a variety of other factors to determine if certain broad conditions were more or less correlated with relative progress on the MDGs” (6/9).
