Summary: The theme of Global Monitoring Report (GMR) 2013 is rural-urban disparities in development and ways urbanization can better help achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Not only is the theme highly rel-evant for assessing progress within the current MDG framework, but it also has the potential to inform discussions about the post 2015 development framework in which urbanization will be a major factor 96 percent of the additional 1.4 billion people in the developing world in 2030 will live in urban areas. This GMR highlights those MDGs that are lagging in progress and consequently need additional attention, while pointing out that accelerating toward attainment of one MDG will likely provide positive spillovers to the attainment of others. The report shows that Official Development Assistance (ODA) and progress with aid effectiveness have been less than stellar.
