UNDG MDG Good Practices (2010)

Good practices covered in this publication have sought to address specific constraints and challenges in achieving the Goals, in each country’s context. The publication provides evidence on different approaches to achieving the various MDGs and the importance of recognizing the synergies between these and the Internationally Agreed Development Goals. Some case studies may be familiar while others may serve as technical references for development practitioners. They demonstrate that, even under resource-constrained circumstances, there are innovative ways of overcoming obstacles to accelerate progress.
