Since their adoption by the Millennium Summit in September 2000, the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) have constituted the new framework of policy formulation and development strategies. The adoption of the MDGs has constituted an important advance of the international community in terms of building a consensus on development and international co-operation priorities. The adoption of this consensus has been reinforced over the last few years by the development of mechanisms aimed at monitoring progress towards achieving the MDGs. The World Summit organized by the United Nations in September 2005 provided a forum to assess the progress made by the regions of the world towards achieving these goals. In this regard, it should be noted that the majority of the regions in the world have recorded good results and have made credible progress towards achieving the goals (UNECA 2005).
