Millennium Development Goals

  • Thailand Official Development Assistance Report 2007-2008Jan 1, 2009
    The Thai Official Development Assistance (ODA) report is offered by Thailand International Development Cooperation Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, with continuous support from United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Thailand.

  • Women's Right to a Political Voice in Thailand MDG3: Promote Gender Equality and Empower WomenJan 6, 2006
    Targeted at policy makers, politicians, proponents of gender equality, and the general public, the report is intended to provide illuminating information as well as to serve as a tool for mobilizing support for increased women’s participation in politics and administration.

  • Nakorn Phanom Provincial Millennium Development Goals Report 2006Jan 1, 2006
    Persistent disparities among regions and groups within the country, including marginalized and vulnerable peoples, need to be addressed. Policies and resources are needed to tackle poverty and below-average health conditions in the North-east, the remote highland areas of the North, and the three predominantly Muslim southernmost provinces – all of which are areas that are lagging behind the rest of the country. As the national report cannot reflect development results and differences at the micro-level, this Provincial MDG Report was initiated to begin the localization process.

  • Thailand Millennium Development Goals Report 2004Nov 3, 2004
    This report provides a powerful account of how Thailand has achieved most of the internationally agreed Millennium Development Goals. I am confident that our experience can make a significant contribution to international efforts to meet development goals and targets. In this regard, Thailand emerges as an important contributor to the global partnership for development called for in the eighth Millennium Development Goal. Based on our lessons learnt, we are an important partner for other developing countries, offering development cooperation, opening up our markets and providing much needed foreign direct investment.

  • Thailand Millennium Development Goals Report 2009Jul 15, 2010
    This Report shows that Thailand has met several MDGs targets, i.e. poverty and hunger, universal primary education, gender equality, fight against HIV/AIDS, access to clean drinking water and sanitation, improving the lives of people in slums, and global partnership. More strenuous effort is needed to achieve sustainable development and to address the country’s ambitious MDG+ targets on child mortality and maternal health in remote areas, all of which requires relentless engagement from all parties.

  • Aid Effectiveness: “From Paris to Bangkok”Oct 4, 2006
    As an emerging donor, Thailand has a great opportunity to learn from the successes and failures of traditional donors and adopt international best practices in its delivery of development assistance to other countries in the region and beyond. The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, endorsed by Thailand as well as a number of partner countries and multilateral organizations in 2005, provides a timely set of principles and indicators that can help shape the future of Thailand’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) programme.

  • Mae Hong Son Provincial Millennium Goals Report 2005Jan 1, 2005
    In September 2000, 189 nations came together at the United Nations Millennium Summit in New York and endorsed the Millennium Declaration, setting out a global agenda for the start of the 21st Century to promote human development and reduce global inequalities. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – eight ambitious goals to be achieved by 2015 – are drawn directly from the Millennium Declaration. The eight goals contain 18 targets that are monitored through 48 indicators.

  • Trang Provincial MDG Report 2008Jan 1, 2008
    The findings in this report on the province of Trang have benefited from the experience gained in Mae Hong Son and Nakhon Phanom. Further, the report takes account of linkages between the MDGs and the provincial development strategy that may subsequently be translated into action plans for implementation.

Our Work - MDGs
Achieving Ambitious MDG Targets

Thailand has achieved many of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) at a national level well in advanced of the 2015 targets, and has set a timeline for ambitious targets that go beyond the original goals. However, some regions and groups are being left behind, and disparities are striking.

UNDP supports Thailand in setting and monitoring MDG-Plus targets, going beyond aggregate national achievements to focus on specific regions and groups. UNDP is also helping to build a country-level coalition to promote action on the MDGs.
