Egypt Keeping Track of the Millennium Development Goals
As an active partner to all summits held during the nineties and in addition to hosting the International Conference on Population and Development, Egypt has actively participated in the global consultations leading to the endorsement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in September 2000.
Egypt is fully committed to MDG implementations on all levels. Tracking Egypt’s progress in achieving the MDGs has been systematically carried out, through the preparation of five national reports, the latest of which was published in 2010. The Ministry of Economic Development sponsored these reports that portrayed Egypt’s progress in achieving each of the MDGs and their trend since 2000 as well as highlighted factors boosting and/or inhibiting progress. These reports provided guidance concerning the process of identifying priorities as well as future actions to ensure the achievement of the MDGs within the target date.
The 2010 report in particular constituted an important benchmark since it was five-years prior to the specified target date. It aimed to provide up-to-date follow-up of Egypt’s progress toward achieving each of the Millennium Development Goals. Evidence- based indicators, mainly dependent on national statistics, within the best possible limits; in accordance with international standards, would allow tracking progress under each of the eight goals, in order to determine the possibility of successful achievement by the target date.
