View All Publications

In September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the goal to end poverty, improve health, reduce inequality and address climate change by 2030. To measure progress, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were created, each with specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. Each goal includes a set of indicators to track success. PMA2020 provides data for several of these indicators, allowing world leaders to track progress towards achieving these ambitious goals more frequently than ever before. This brief compares the current status of five Sub-Saharan African countries — Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Uganda, Kenya and Ghana — on the indicators and related data available from their latest PMA2020 surveys.
