i bellieve the greatest challenge to the achievement of the MDG'S are basically Infrastructure constraints. We all need to add our voice to push Governments, individuals and especially corporate organisations to contribute by providing infrastructure

africa is her own enemy in terms of the MDG's. With the kind of leadership we see in africa-the rate of corruption and waiting for other people to chart the course of our wellbeing is our downfall.we need to understand the issues that are affecting us and prescribe the right medicine.its amazing that africa has 80%of the resources in the world yet we are the poorest continent.we need to answer the question why are we poor? the issue of history come into play.the issue of economic injustice has to be analysised well. africa has a debt where did it come from?we are the richest continent just look at the morden day scambble for africa.so how can we acheive the MDG's considering all this which is against us? remember our economies were prescribed with a harvard university student's theisis called ESAP and where did that took us? its high time we start to look for and implememnt homegrown solutions then we might acheive the MDG"s. i rest my case.

I have also seen the problem of non implematation of policies as a stumbling block to our acheiving the MDG's.We have so many brilliant policies and ideas gathering dust in the offices our our governments.These just need implementation.

basically it ends with corruption and greed not only by the ruling class, but also the business society and individuals.with corruption you see unqualified public servants who are the policy makers, business people who oil the hands of state officials to get lucrative tenders then do a shoddy job etc. another problem could be the policies that African governments have adopted, for a business to be up and running in some countries, you need more than 5 licenses and application for these licenses require money and at least 3 weeks for each license to be processed. i need not to talk about access to credit since it is a nightmare.

well , in my country to achieve MDGs by 2015 is not mission impossible , but to do that i believe there should be a governmental commitment in addition to the community awareness and unfortunately both are absent . my country comes last in corruption ranking tables . i don't think this will work out . there is a huge gap between social levels and people live in extreme poverty and they don't have the will to change in sense of participating in the change ! so how can we do it ?!
