Namibia Millenium Development Goals Report 2004
The finalisation of this first report on Namibia’s national progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) coincides with the launch of the country’s long-term Vision 2030, which will guide us towards a future of Prosperity, Harmony, Peace and Political Stability. The MDGs form a critical part of our nation’s efforts to monitor progress towards the realisation of this Vision. This report shows that since our Independence in 1990 we have made many great achievements; for instance, in providing education and healthcare, water and sanitation, and managing our economic and natural resources. However, the most important acheivement, the liberation of our people, is not easily captured in data and numbers. The value of freedom is hard to measure. For all Namibians, freedom is priceless.
