MDG 1 Achievements and scaling up strategies
Bhutan continues to make significant and sustained progress in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). However, many projects face the challenge of ensuring that results and impact can be scaled up and/or sustained over time. While some external factors may take much longer to address, UNDP firmly believes that it can certainly re-align its strategies to enable scaled up support for development effectiveness at the local level.
In this regard, the UNDP MDG Breakthrough Strategy (2010) stipulates that scaling up integrated local development initiatives will help accelerate progress towards MDGs through expanding local services to support MDG developing capacity of local agencies to deliver, and better aligning central and local institutional framework.
