hana, like other developing nations,
was not left behind in embracing the
eight time-bound Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs) in September 2000. The
millennium development goals aimed
towards peace and good standards of living
have been faced with series of problems in
its attainment in Ghana. These problems
have undermined the extent to which
Ghana could achieve the MDGs. The study
adopting qualitative research method
shows that Ghana is faced with difficulty in
achieving these eight millennium
development goals in certain portions of
the nation most especially in the rural
communities due to lack of infrastructure.
The study therefore recommends that
Ghana should focus more on improving the
standard of living of the rural dwellers by
increasing the public services in the area.
The need for Ghana to focus more on
solving these problems is strategic for a
better result in this new era of Sustainable
Development Goals.
