Corruption Hinders MDGs - CIVICUS

Most African countries will not meet the MDGs because of corruption, warns Tiwana

CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation has warned that Africa will not be able to realise the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) because of corruption.
 
CIVICUS head of policy and research, Mandeep Tiwana, points out that the MDGs are eight time-bound goals which provide concrete, numerical benchmarks for tackling extreme poverty in its many dimensions.
 
Tiwana states that these includes targets on income poverty, hunger, maternal and child mortality, disease, inadequate shelter, gender inequality, environmental degradation and the Global Partnership for Development.
 
He further says inequalities are not an African problem but it is a global problem, adding that these are some of the serious issues our leaders need to address.
