2006-2015 MDGs Needs Assessment and Costing Report

01 Nov 2007

Report Summary

Bhutan is one of the first countries in Asia to undertake such an exercise and the Bhutan MDG Needs Assessment and Costing report presents a detailed assessment of what the country requires in terms of financial, human and institutional resource needs and policy reforms to meet the MDGs by 2015. The MDG Needs Assessment and Costing exercise was also conducted almost in tandem with the preparation of the Tenth Plan, thereby mainstreaming the MDGs into the Tenth Plan process.

The process began in June 2006 with a Joint UN Scoping Mission to identify priority sectors and areas for the needs assessment and brief key stakeholders within the government as well as other national and international development partners in the country on issues related to MDG needs assessment and costing.
