12 Oct 2012

This report aims to describe the progress made in implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) between 2005 and 2010, based primarily on data provided by the Integrated Population Welfare Survey (IBEP) between 2008 and 2009, conducted by the National Statistics Institute (INE).


The report presents conclusions on progress in eight MDGs, on 18 international development goals and operational indicators, along with other relevant aspects of combating poverty and promoting the welfare of the population.


In the analysis of each objective, it was discussed aspects of diagnosis and trends (prospects for the implementation of the objectives based on assessment of the current situation), challenges (the constraints that must be eliminated) and the most relevant policies and programmes implemented by the Angolan Government to attain the objectives.


The report's findings show that Angola has the best outcomes indicators for objectives 1, 2, 4, 5 and 8.


This is the third report since the Angolan Government´s commitment towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2000 and reflects progress in this field between 2008-2009.


This report has much higher quality information than the previous report and provides a more consistent and appropriate data series to assess the country's situation regarding the MDGs.
