Toolbox is a project of content that moves.


At content that moves we create projects that focus on building connections - connecting organizations to audiences and turning viewers into engaged participants.


As part of that initiative, we collect & curate resources on subjects that relate to our core focus areas and make it available to clients and partners through a collection of online "digital magazines" we call toolbox.

Report on progress in achieving the Millennium Development Goals in Africa, 2013

Report on progress in achieving the Millennium Development Goals in Africa, 2013 | The Road to Huruma | Scoop.it

This report is the latest update by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa on the progress that Africa is making towards the Millennium Development Goals.


It builds on the reports of previous years in taking stock of progress made by African countries in the implementation of the MDG commitments in 2012, including the support provided by the ECA secretariat.


The central message of this year’s report is that Africa has made significant progress towards the MDGs, but that it is uneven and too slow. There are also wide variations in performance across regions and countries, as well as across targets and indicators within the goals.

Why the MDGs are both too ambitious and not ambitious enough | Development Policy Blog

Why the MDGs are both too ambitious and not ambitious enough | Development Policy Blog | The Road to Huruma | Scoop.it

The Millennium Development Goals have the unenviable distinction of being both shamefully under ambitious and wildly over ambitious. This sounds impossible but it’s not, for reasons that I’ll explain in a moment. First, though, I want to make one thing clear: I’m not an MDG-hater. Since their inception the Goals have been on the receiving end of fierce (and sometimes justified) critique. Yet my own take is that while the MDGs are flawed there’s no evidence that they’ve proven harmful or that the world would have been a better place without them.

Globalisation and Development: How can business help the MDGs?

Globalisation and Development: How can business help the MDGs? | The Road to Huruma | Scoop.it
toolbox's insight:

The UN High Level Panel met a few weeks ago to discuss the Post-2015 Millennium Development Goals framework. The new MDGs have been at the forefront of discussion in the UK, as Prime Minister David Cameron is co-chairing the panel with the presidents of Indonesia and Liberia. Out of the UK events, blogs and online discussion, different means of encouraging business participation in the MDGs have emerged: including business in the MDG consultation process, asking business to contribute to an enabling environment for economic growth and poverty reductionintegrating the MDGs into corporate strategic goals or even having an MDG oriented around private sector goals like FDI, employment or supply-chain inclusion.

An issue that has been assumed, but not directly addressed has been: while targeting the MDGs, how do you build local capacities?

Sustainable Visions

Sustainable Visions | The Road to Huruma | Scoop.it

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is mobilizing global action around the great challenge of our time: sustainable development. It is a call that the world must heed.


It is no longer good enough for economies simply to grow. We must also end extreme poverty, a goal within reach by 2030. We must manage the economy to protect rather than destroy the environment. And we must promote a fairer distribution of prosperity, rather than a society divided between the very rich and the very poor.


We use the term “sustainable development” precisely to mean economic growth that ends extreme poverty, increases social inclusion, and is environmentally healthy. Sadly, the world is way off track.
