2 Purpose and Methodology of the MDGNA Purpose: Identify a framework of specific interventions necessary to achieve the MDGs; Estimate the financial resources and policy actions needed to implement these interventions; Promote substantive discussion about resource needs for development. Methodology: Key interventions and investments identified for MDGs 1-7; Baseline Scenario: GDP Growth- 5% annually; Increase tax revenue-from 16% to 19% by 2015; Expenditures from the state budget on MDG related activities-31%. High (growth) Scenario: GDP Growth- 7% annually; Increase tax revenue-from 16% to 24% by 2015; Expenditures from the state budget on MDG related activities-50%. Projections: population and macroeconomic; Absorptive capacity and MDG interlinkages.
