This report assesses the regionâ€™s prospects of reaching Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Target 10. It uses the latest data available to measure each countryâ€™s progress toward MDG Target 10 and analyzes whether it will be achieved. Some countries have already met the target; others are on track; others are likely to miss it in 2015. Some countries even show a decrease in coverage. The analysis in this report figures how much it will cost to ensure each country in the region meets MDG Target 10. The correlation between water and each of the eight MDGs is explicitly drawn in the report, showing water as a bridge to meeting all other MDGs. The report also defines the challenges threatening the regionâ€™s chance of meeting MDG Target 10 and assigns roles and responsibilities to be taken up by key stakeholders. The regional picture this report presents should serve as a resource and representation of the progress and needs of the regionâ€™s 3.9 billion people.
