Significant gaps remain in delivering on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the areas of aid, trade, debt relief, access to new technologies and affordable essential medicines. This report monitors the progress made in achieving the targets of MDG 8, including continued attention to the impact of the global crisis on meeting the targets set under MDG 8 and embedding any new commitments resulting from the High-level Plenary Meeting of the 65th session of the General Assembly on the MDGs into the monitoring process. Policy coherence is a central theme of this report, which provides recommendations to all major stakeholders on how to address the remaining implementation gaps.

Access to new technologies

Countries can raise income levels by increasing labour productivity; one way of achieving this is through the use of more advanced technologies. The development of relevant technology in developing countries and the transfer of advanced technology on appropriate terms from developed economies are thus at the heart of long-run development. Accordingly, target 8.F of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) calls upon the international community, in cooperation with the private sector, to make the benefits of new technologies available to developing countries.
