'progress' is the definition.

'independence campaign receives present' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'independence' could be 'i' and 'i' is found within the answer.
'present' could be 'pr' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'pr' is found within the answer.
'campaign' could be 'movement' (synonyms) and 'movement' is present in the remaining letters.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'for' acts as a link.
