14 Mark McGillivray Finally, having examined ‘progress towards the MDGs’ it would be remiss, at this stage of the chapter, not to consider what this actually means. What does ‘progress towards the MDGs’ or for that matter ‘MDG achievement’ actually mean? The preceding discussion has, to some extent, been vague with respect to these questions. Answers to them logically follow from each other, so let us focus on the meaning of the second question. There are three possible interpretations for any given goal: (i) achievement in all countries and therefore worldwide; (ii) achievement in all regions of the world but not necessarily achievement in each country within each region; or (iii) achievement in the world as a whole but not necessarily in each region or country.
