Develop a Global Partnership for Development India’s target focus within this goal is to make available the benefits of technology to a wider mass in cooperation with the private sector.
The number of mobile telephone subscribers in India has increased from 811.49 million in March 2011 to 919.17 million as on 31st March 2012, registering an increase of 13.2% in a period of one year. The overall Teledensity (number of telephones per hundred persons) in India has reached 78,66 by 31st March 2012 compared to 70.89 at the end of the previous year.
At the end of June-2011, 98.1% of the total inhabited villages
in India have been connected by telephones.
Over a period of 13 years, internet subscriber base had increased by 109 fold from 0.21 million in 1999 to 22.86 million in 2012.
Globally challenges to the achievement of MDG Goals are a recession, high inflation rate, the low expenditure of these impediments Development Goals Report 2013 shows that the right policies and actions, backed by adequate funding and strong political commitment, public health, poor infrastructure, adverse climate & global warming. In spite, there is slow but definite progress towards MDGs. The Millennium can yield results.
More than ten years have passed since world leaders established goals and targets to free humanity from extreme poverty hunger and disease. Despite setbacks after the 2008-09 economic downturn exacerbated by the food and energy crisis, the world has reached the poverty reduction target five years ahead of schedule. The proportion of undernourished people in developing regions decreased from 23.2 percent in 1990-1992 to 14.9 percent in 2010-2012. Given reinvigorated efforts, the target of halving the percentage of people suffering from hunger by 2015 appears to be within reach. Still, undernourished.
Between 2000 and 2011, the number of children out of school
declined by almost half-from 102 million to 57 million. However, girls are more
likely to be out of school than boys among both primary and lower secondary age
groups, even for girls living in the richest households.
This means that the world is unlikely to meet the target of universal primary education by 2015.
Whether in the public or private sphere, from the highest levels of government decision- making in decisions that affect their lives.
Worldwide, the mortality rate for children under five dropped by 41 percent, from 87 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1990 to 51 in 2011. Increasingly, child deaths are concentrated in the poorest regions, and in the first month of life.
Globally, the maternal mortality ratio declined by 47 percent over the last two decades, from 400 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births to 210 betv 2en 1990 and 2010. Meeting the MDG target of reducing the ratio by three quarters will require accelerated interventions and stronger political commitment. A wide gap remains in women’s access to paid work in at least half of all regions.
Between 2000 and 2010, mortality rates from malaria fell by more than 25 percent globally An estimated 1.1 million deaths from malaria were averted over this period.
While new HIV infections are declining, an estimated 34 million people were living with HIV at the end of 2011. The MDG target of universal access to antiretroviral therapy for all who need it by 2010 was missed but is reachable by 2015 if current trends continue. The ultimate goal is preventing the spread of HIV, but knowledge of the virus and how to avoid transmission remains unacceptably low.
Access to improved sources of drinking water has increased by 76 percent in 1990 to 89 percent in 2010. Thus the MDG drinking water target was met five years ahead of the target date. However, progress has been uneven.
From 1990 to 2011, 1.9 billion people gained access to an improved sanitation facility. Despite these accomplishments meet the MDG target.
Between 2000 and 2010, over 200 million slum dwellers benefitted from improved water sources, sanitation facilities, durable housing or sufficient living space, thereby exceeding the 100 million MDG target. Many countries across all regions have shown remarkable progress in reducing the proportion of urban slum dwellers.
The analysis of a wide range of statistics shows that the actions of all stakeholders are coalescing in the achievement of many of the MDGs. At the same time, many items on the agenda remain incomplete. Action needs to be taken on rural-urban, rich-poor and gender disparities for access to basic minimum facilities. The results of this report give us a clear indication of where our efforts must be directed in the days remaining before the 2015 deadline.
