Call for Result Based Approach to Achieve MDGs

The New Partnership for Africa’s Development has called on the results-based approach if African countries are to achieve the Millennium Development Goals
The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) has called on the results-based approach if African countries are to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Speaking to the South Africa Broadcasting Corporation on the sidelines of the MDG Summit in New York, NEPAD’s head of planning and coordinating agency, Ibrahim Mayaki, also argued that there will be no reductions in poverty without reductions in inequality first.

Mayaki states that: "Poverty is absolutely linked to inequality, so by reducing inequality, you reduce poverty so when you have socio-economic strategies which do not take into account the reduction of inequality, it is harder to attain the MDGs".
