Global Monitoring Reports

The Global Monitoring Report series, produced by the World
Bank and the International Monetary Fund,
focuses on how the world is doing in implementing the policies and actions for achieving the Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs) and related development outcomes. The reports are a framework for
accountability in g
lobal development policy.

GMR 2010:

The MDGs after the

Crisis

The global financial crisis has slowed the pace of poverty reduction in developing countries and is
hampering progress toward the other MDGs.
Global Monitoring Report 2010 cautions that the crisis will
affect long
-
term development prospects in developing countries well beyond 2015.

GMR 2009:

A Development Emergency

This report warns that, although

the first goal of halving extreme poverty by 2015 from its 1990 level is
still reachable based on current projections, risks abound.

GMR 2008: MDGs and the Environment
-

Agenda for Inclusive and Sustainable

Development

This report stresses the link between environment and development and calls for urgent action on climate
change. To build on hard
-
won gains, developing countries need support to address the links between
growth, development and environmental s
ustainability.

GMR 2007: Confronting the Challenges of Gender Equality and Fragile States

This report emphasized that women's equality and fragile states need to receive concerted attention and the
internati
onal community must scale up strategies for reaching the eight Millennium Development Goals.

GMR 2006: Strengthening Mutual Accountability
-

Aid, Trade & Governance

This report highlighted economic growth,
better quality aid, and trade reforms, as well as governance as
essential elements to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

GMR 2005: Millennium Development Goals: From Consensus to Momentum

The 2005 report noted that progress toward the MDGs has been slower and more uneven across regions
than originally envisaged, with Sub
-
Saharan Africa f
alling far short..

GMR 2004: Policies and Actions for Achieving the Millennium Development Goals and Related Outcomes

The findings of the first Global Monitoring
Report provided a sobering assessment of progress toward the
MDGs, and of progress in meeting the commitments made at Monterrey. Most MDGs would not be met by
most countries, it noted.
