Millennium Development Goals: 2005 Progress Report - Angola

20 Sep 2006

This report presents the progress in the implementation of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Angola in 2001-2004.


The 2005 MDG Progress Report is the second in a series of MDG reporting in Angola. The 2003   pub­lication provided baseline statistical information for indicators and target tracking and revealed a weak statistical apparatus for monitoring MDGs, which has not improved greatly over the last few years. It should also be noted that the official statistics, due to various constraints with data collection, do not cover all the areas to be monitored and assessed in the MDG context.


The 2005 report has more features than the 2003 report. Besides the assessment on the progress of the MDGs, the report sets out the main challenges and policies to adopt, as well as priorities for Angola so that by 2015 most of the MDGs are achieved.


The report suggests where to apply effort in policy formulation, program implementation or resource mo­bilization, or a combination of all three factors.  The report reinforces the need to strengthen policies in all the MDG areas and ensure the convergence of sectoral policies.


Overall, the report provides an indication of the probability of meeting the agreed goals by the 2015 deadline.
