After the MDGs, renewed commitment and financing required to spur Africa’s development
New York, 28 September, 2015 -- Having made encouraging progress on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), African countries have the opportunity to use the newly launched Sustainable Development Goals to tackle remaining challenges and achieve a development breakthrough, according to a report released here today.
Sub-Saharan Africa must provide universal access to decent jobs and social services if it is to achieve decisive development progress, according to the report .
This year the report shows that progress has been made in primary school enrolment, gender parity in primary school enrolment, the proportion of seats held by women in national parliament and HIV and AIDS prevalence rates. In spite of this progress, Africa still faces the challenges of addressing pervasive income inequalities, creating decent jobs, access to health and sanitation services.
