The studies in this series have been published by ESCAP/ADB/UNDP in a joint project on MDGs in Asia and the Pacific. They look at key drivers which have propelled MDG achievements in the region, and which are likely to remain important in the region’s quest for reaching the Goals by 2015. They focus specifically on three areas where increased and sustained policy attention would be required: hunger and food security; health and basic services; and basic infrastructure. The series is a resource which policy makers, development practitioners and other stakeholders should find useful in achieving the MDGs.
