Millennium Development Goals Final Summary Report 2015

27 Jul 2016

Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) third and final Millennium Development Goals Summary Report (MDGSR) 2015. PNG was one of 189 United Nations Member States to sign the Millennium Declaration adopting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in September 2000.

Overall the progress towards meeting the MDGs has been mixed. PNG has made significant improvements in most of the targets, compared with our 1990 baseline, as well as meeting most of the localised targets, but falls short on most of the MDGs. Some notable achievements in the past 15 years were seen in the areas of health and education.

This report gives an opportunity to reflect on PNG journey since 1990, and also serves as a resource to generate national development discourse as we embark on the post-2015 development agenda.
