Claiming the MDGs: An Empowerment Framework

The primary focus of this framework is on the most vulnerable groups – those who are not represented in the ‘average’ figures used to determine aggregate resource needs. According to UNDP, “the existing MDG needs assessment and costing methodology does not account for the critical exclusionary mechanisms standing in the way of people’s ability to access opportunities.”  In response, the Empowerment Framework provides a guide to ‘what to look for’ when undertaking sector-based needs assessments to inform an MDG-based planning exercise.
