The project aims to contribute to mainstreaming the MDGs into Belize’s national plans and budget while strengthening national planning capacities. These objectives are pursued through a collaborative needs assessment and costing process focused on MDGs 3, 4 and 7.

The assessment involves a determination of the status of Belize’s progress toward achieving the eight (8) MDGs; measures required for realizing the Goals 3, 4 and 7; and an estimation of the recurrent and investment costs associated with the indicated measures. Assessment activities are undertaken by a national assessment team, guided by an international consultant responsible for leading the knowledge transfer and product development processes. Outputs are: 1) training in MDG Needs Assessment methodology and requisite tools and concepts, 2) an Interim MDG Scorecard and Outlook Report, 3) a final MDG Needs Assessment and Cost Prognosis Report, 4) MDG Needs Assessment toolkit, and 5) a Project Document for a basket funded MDG Achievement Initiative.

What have we accomplished so far

MDG NACP involves an assessment of the status of Belize’s progress toward achieving the eight (8) MDGs and the measures required for realizing Goals 3, 4 and 7. In this regard the 2010 MDG Scorecard and Outlook Report has been elaborated and released, bringing Belize up to date on the progress made to date. Overall the project is mainstreaming MDG achievement into national planning and budgets, while strengthening national planning capacity. Technical support to MDG aligned ministries has taken place to date to build capacity for national planning for MDGs 3 and 7.
