About the product

The Asia-Pacific region comprising the bulk of the world's poor, hungry and sick people presented a mixed and uneven picture in its progress toward the Millennium Development Goals’ (MDGs) targets at the time of the last assessment. This Report takes stock of the status of achievement of MDGs in the Asia-Pacific region and identifies some of the key challenges. It discusses the possible policy responses that may guide the region in its efforts to meet the challenges. In particular, it emphasizes the role of social protection as well as regional and South-South cooperation for addressing some of the key challenges while strengthening global partnership. The Report is a valuable resource for policy makers, development practitioners, civil society organizations, private sector and media concerned with the achievement of the MDGs in Asia and the Pacific.
