Jordan’s second Millennium Development Goals Report 2010 shows the extent to which progress has been made towards achieving those targets and highlights the challenges that still confront the country to achieve these goals. The report seeks to identify the policies required for meeting the MDG targets by the year 2015, at a time when the United Nations and the World’s governments are exerting a collective effort to review the progress achieved to date and identify the obstacles standing in the way of meeting the goals and targets by 2015.

At the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000, 189 Member States adopted the Millennium Declaration and pledged to achieve the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the target date of 2015.

Since then, the declaration has succeeded in galvanizing unprecedented efforts to urge governments together with civil society organizations, the private sector and the international community in addressing the needs of the world’s poorest.

In Jordan, the first National MDG report was released in 2004 and made an effective contribution to the country’s policy-making as the goals, targets and indicators were adapted and aligned with national plans and development priorities.
