""In effect, PASDEP is explicitly linked to the MDGs and constitutes Ethiopia's medium term plan for achieving the MDGs. "" (pg.1)
"" The poverty reduction effort of the Government of Ethiopia has taken a longer-term view with the MDGs in perspective. Accordingly, the PASDEP was conceived as the medium-term plan to attain the MDGs. In other words, it is an MDGs-based plan. It establishes concrete basis for human rights -the right of every person in the country to health, education, shelter and security-' as pledged in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Millennium Declaration. For the millions of Ethiopians still living in extreme poverty, Ethiopia's MDG-Based Plan carries the hopes and aspiration of the next decade. Hence, this Five Year Development Plan (PASDEP) has been synchronized and aligned with the MDG time frame."" (pg.2)
