Answer to Question #63859 in Other Economics for haley clark
first question: How does Gambia collect their MDG data?
second question: Do all countries collect MDG data the same way? explain.
The MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) are relevant to The Gambia’s development context as they set clear targets for reducing poverty, hunger, illiteracy, disease, discrimination against women and environmental degradation as well as requisite global partnerships in support of such efforts. The Government of The Gambia, at the highest levels, has committed itself to integrating the MDGs into its planning processes. The government established a National Planning Commission (NPC) for coordinating the national Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) via the implementation of the PRSP, the NPC is the primary government agency charged with tracking MDG targets. All other countries collect MDG data almost the same way as Gambia.
