    Many countries have implemented development strategies to achieve the MDGs, but in some the rate of progress has been slow. UNDP has developed the MDG Acceleration Framework (MAF), with technical inputs and collaboration with other United Nations agencies, to support countries in determining how they can accelerate progress in such cases. The MAF is a flexible, yet systematic process of identifying and analyzing bottlenecks and possible high-impact solutions to achieving a country’s MDG priorities. It leads to a concrete plan of action, with coordinated roles for the government and all other development stakeholders.
