MDG Monitor has been created by the UN Development Programme in partnership with the Statistics Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), Relief Web of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Funding and in-kind support were provided by Google and Cisco. It is intended to provide a single quick portal for tracking data on progress towards the Millennium development goals. It has an online map and the ability to create graphs by nation or by goal. Goals include: poverty, education, gender equality, child mortality. maternal health, environment and development.
