Progress towards the Millennium development goals in Egypt: a comparison between the national level and poorer villages

Measuring the progress towards the MDGs provides a picture of the achievement of human development indicators at the national level, which does not reflect the conditions of the most vulnerable groups, who mostly exist in the countryside or sufficiently inform social development policies at a time when Egypt is keen on progressing on the path of social justice.
 
This paper which is prepared by Eman Refaat and Bassant Yousef attempts to compare the situation of human development at the national level to the level of the poorest 151 villages in Egypt, where 84% of citizens are poor, using the MDGs benchmarks with a view to testing and highlighting evident inequalities between the two levels. The results of the paper, hence, points out the legitimate need of the Egyptian government to continue its strategy of spatial targeting of poverty through the continuation of the 1000 villages program.
