UNDP in Action 2009/2010: Delivering on Commitments
From supporting the empowerment of women, developing sustainable livelihoods and conducting elections, to the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of former combatants and helping countries adapt to the effects of climate change, UNDP in Action showcases some of the many development results that UNDP has helped achieve across the world.
UNDP in Action 2009/2010: Delivering on Commitments showcases results. All of UNDP’s policy advice, technical and financial support and advocacy toward strengthening human development are aimed at one end result: real improvements in people’s lives. In 2009, in many of the countries where it operates, UNDP continued to experience a high demand for development support in areas covering: poverty reduction and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); democratic governance; crisis prevention and recovery; and environment and sustainable development.
At the same time, the global economic crisis required an urgent response from UNDP, especially in terms of helping countries to identify and protect the most vulnerable. With the UN’s 2010 MDG global summit approaching, 2009 was a year for UNDP to take stock of progress made and to accelerate the work needed to achieve the MDGs by the 2015 deadline.
