Call for New Plans on Development Goals

Global anti-poverty group, ONE, says there is an urgent need for a new plan to help the continent develop

Global anti-poverty group, ONE, says industrialised countries have delivered an historic increase in development aid to Africa in the past five years, but they have gone only three-fifths of the way towards meeting their targets and there is an urgent need for a new plan to help the continent develop.

ONE states despite the ‘great progress’ in the past five years, it has enough data to know that the targets and their ambitiously hopeful outcomes have not been met.

In a report which assesses the degree to which the G8 countries lived up to the aid promises they made at their summit in Gleneagles, Scotland, in 2005, it says, "Donors have supported African countries to make important strides in their own development agendas, such as scaling up access to life-saving antiretroviral drugs and sending 42 million more children to school."
