This chapter assesses progress on a number of indicators first set out in the Development Co-operation Report for 2003 to measure how the development community is contributing to the sustainable reduction of poverty. It finds that there is progress on many fronts, but that it has been relatively modest. As the indicators measure the results of a huge number of decisions by many different actors, it is not surprising that overall change is quite slow. But the findings underline the scope for much further progress if the development community is to make as large an impact as it should on helping poor countries advance towards the Millennium Development Goals.
