UNDP in Iran aspires to support the government in its efforts towards meeting the MDGs. While the country is currently on the track for meeting many of these goals, the national averages reveal significant disparities between the rich and the poor, the young and the old, men and women as well as inhabitants of different regions.While the latest statistical data on the progress of Iran towards the MDGs is based on the last MDG report published in 2006, the continuous progress towards these goals can be seen through the achievement and results of UNDP’s various projects in the country.
