image of Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Gap Task Force Report 2012

The 2012 Report will continue to follow the progress on official development assistance, market access, debt sustainability, access to essential medicines and new technologies as prescribed by the Millennium Development Goal 8. Closer attention will be given to the impact of the global crisis on meeting the targets, and ways to further increase aid effectiveness following the recommendations of the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness. Some evidence on whether the needs of developing countries are being met will be presented. The Report will also serve as a building block to start formulating the post-2015 development agenda by taking stock of the progress made so far.

Executive summary

In 2007, the Secretary-General of the United Nations invited the organizations of the multilateral system to form an inter-secretariat task force to better monitor implementation of the commitments commonly summarized as “Goal 8” of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Since its formation, the MDG Gap Task Force has been measuring progress in implementing commitments to strengthen official development assistance (ODA), to improve access of developing- country exports to international markets, to enhance cooperation to achieve and maintain sustainable external debt situations in developing countries, and to deepen developing-country access to affordable essential medicines and new technologies. In addition to reporting the progress in these areas, since its first report in 2008, the Task Force has identified the gaps between commitment and delivery and has called upon the international community to fill those gaps.
