UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recently launched a website that can track countries’ progress on the Millennium Development Goals. The website is meant to serve as a reality check for donors, governments and other actors that are committed to meeting the MDGs.

A new website aimed to provide information related to the Millennium Development Goals was launched to track countries’ progress on MDGs. The website Integrated Implementation Framework, can help donors check which countries are still lagging on via an interactive mapping tool. For example: reducing deaths from malaria.

The website was launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at an informal UN General Assembly meeting, who proposed the initiative in 2010.

The website provides information on the commitments made in support of the MDGs by UN member states and other international stakeholders. Non-governmental organisations can search through the site by country, MDG or initiative. Raw data can be downloaded as a spreadsheet, although not all of the information is up-to-date.
