Gambia on the way to achieving MDG’s/PRSP II

Friday, February 22, 2008

The Pro-PAG group recently held regional capacity building exercise for the Banjul and KMC areas at which it launched MDG/PRSP II for 2008- 2011.

The Millennium Development Goals declaration was adopted in September 2000 by 189 countries and aims to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger by the year 2015.

The seminar brought together stakeholders and the media. These groups were engaged in a process to increase awareness and enhance public participation.

During the three-day seminar participants deliberated on particular traditions in The Gambia which might help bring about full participation in the policymaking process by the poor.

The outcome of these deliberations is expected to form the basis of ideas needed to address the issue of poverty eradication and the attainment of the MGD’s by 2015.
