The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the centerpiece of development efforts of the Government of Pakistan. The 18 global targets and 48 indicators adopted in 2000 have been translated into 16 national targets and 37 indicators keeping in view Pakistan's specific conditions,priorities, data availability and institutional capacity.
Specifically, the MDGs have been incorporated into the Government's two important macroeconomic frameworks including the New Growth Framework which focuses on inclusive growth and increasing total factor productivity. The other is the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) which is a framework for social and economic policies. Earlier, government's key planning document on development, Medium Term Development Framework (MTDF) 2005-2010 also endorsed the MDGs. To date, however, sufficient progress has only been made on about half of the targeted indicators while others lag behind.
Pakistan's progress towards each of the goals can be viewed by clicking on each of the MDG icons below.
