Drawing upon country experiences and ongoing processes to identify and prioritize bottlenecks interfering with the implementation of key MDG interventions Using knowledge-based good practices to determine objective and feasible solutions for accelerating MDG progress Creating a partnership with identified roles for all relevant stakeholders to jointly achieve MDG progress Responding to national/local political determination to tackle identified off-track MDGs
