Global Monitoring Report 2013. Rural-Urban Dynamics and the Millennium Development Goals
  • International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank. April 2013
  • The Global Monitoring Report (GMR) is an annual report card on the world"s progress toward the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Each annual report has a thematic focus, an aspect of the development agenda on which the GMR provides a more in-depth assessment. The theme of GMR 2013 is rural-urban disparities in development and ways urbanization can better help achieve the MDGs. The report highlights the need to accelerate efforts to improve the lives of the poor in both rural and urban areas and states that, if the forces of urbanization are not managed speedily and efficiently, slum growth can overwhelm city growth, exacerbate urban poverty, and derail MDG achievements. Water and sanitation-related issues are addressed all along the report.
