Attaining the Millennium Development Goals in Ghana by 2015: Myth or Reality? A Statistical Evidence from Kumasi

Addai, Isaac


The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) represent the first collective and integrated attempt to improve the lives and life chances of the world’s poor. By adopting the MDGs, Ghana committed itself to making substantial progress toward the eradication of poverty and achieving other human development goals by 2015. Although Ghana has now attained the lower middle-income status as at 2013, this paper empirically at the micro-level established that it will not meet the majority of the goals by the target date of 2015. Nonetheless all is not lost and with about two more years to reach the target date of 2015, this paper recommends the need to increase commitment from multilateral donors in and of course from the Ghanaian government to meet majority of the targets set by 2015.

Keywords: Millennium Development Goals, collective, integrated, attempt, multilateral donors, targets.
