Mali MDG Scale Up

As the Millennium Villages Project moves toward its second 5 years, the vision of the project, of jump-starting the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the poorest countries, is becoming reality. With existing villages showing “remarkable results,” several countries have developed bold plans to scale up the successful interventions to the national level. The MDG scale-up phase based on the lessons learned of the MVs is on the verge of taking off, notably in Mali and Nigeria, and the government of Senegal has requested support in the last few weeks, as well.
