MDG needs assessments map out the scale of practical interventions required to meet the MDGs in a country, with special focus on infrastructure, human resources and financial requirements. The results of such assessments can form the basis for developing country-specific strategies to meet the MDGs by 2015. Moreover, they provide a framework for the transparent budgeting of public expenditures to meet the MDGs. The following presentations outline the process of MDG needs assessments for several thematic areas.
