Mainstreaming the MDGs into Ethiopia's medium-term development process has helped the Government to channel resources to the critical sectors. The Government's development plan has prioritised interventions that generate positive impact on the MDGs and the country's overall transformation agenda. This summary highlights the country's performance and progress on the MDGs. Data from the recent Household Income, Consumption and Expenditure and the Welfare Monitoring Surveys, the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and the annual (Growth and Transformation Plan) GTP progress review reports have been used to analyze trends in human development and MDGs in particular. Other administrative datasets were also collated and used in this report.
