"Millenium Development Goals" MDG Report for the UNDP.

Kinga Göncz 'I hope sincerely that the findings of this Report support and promote the preparation and implementation of National Action Plans on social inclusion. The process of preparing the Report has already focused the debate on specific development priorities and has helped in drawing up action points for policy reform, institutional change and resource allocation.' So wrote Dr Kinga Gncz (former state secretary at the Ministry of Health, Social Affairs and Family) on the Millennium Development Goals Report for Hungary, produced by TRKI for the UNDP.
In 2003/4 a research was undertaken by TARKI Social Research Institute in order to prepare country report for the Hungary, which assess the country’s progress towards meeting the Global Millennium Development Goals. UNDP MDG HU report cover The Hungarian Millenium Development Goals Report has as its main goal to have lasting improving effect on people's lives. Summarising the achievements so far, setting new national goals and targets has helped national authorities, civic organisations, and policy makers to find the most secure path for Hungarian sustainable human development. The report has been influential in reinforcing Government commitment to fulfil the obligations and at the same time has helped to streamline the most efficient policy steps and measures in achieving the targets set.
The MD goals have been commonly accepted as a framework for measuring development progress. The Millennium Development Goals focus the efforts of the world community on achieving significant, measurable improvements in people's lives. They establish yardsticks for measuring results, not only for developing countries. The first seven goals are mutually reinforcing and are directed at reducing poverty in all its forms.
