Helping Africa Catch Up

The latest Millennium Development Goals Report revealed that sub-Saharan Africa has not made as much progress as was initially hoped for in meeting all of its targets. Part of the reason is the lag time between implementing development programs and reaping their long-term benefits.

UNDP maintains its strong presence on the continent to ensure that these benefits reach those most in need. UNDP's country offices are well-equipped with knowledge and expertise to contribute to and monitor progress on the MDGs as the 2015 deadline approaches.
