UNDP Annual Report Highlights South-South Collaboration via Caribbean Risk Management InitiativeJun 5, 2015
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) 2014/2015 Illustrated Annual Report was launched in the first week of June 2015 and a project highlighting work undertaken in Jamaica was included in the report.
The report, Time for Global Action, highlights the significance of 2015 for the completion of the MDGs and the transition to the post-2015 sustainable development agenda, the Paris Climate Change commitments and the UN 70th Anniversary.
Work being done in the Caribbean, including Jamaica, was highlighted in the report, in a feature story on the work of the Caribbean Risk Management Initiative (CRMI), a regional project implemented by the UNDP Regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean, described here.
Time for Global Action focuses on why UNDP is increasingly a partner of choice for a sustainable and more prosperous future for people and planet. Through vivid stories, the Report illustrates the leadership role that UNDP continues to play in eradicating poverty and reducing inequality and exclusion worldwide. It also highlights UNDP’s role in facilitating the global conversation to help formulate the new Sustainable Development Goals and the organisation’s ability to convene governments, civil society and the private sector to meet the development challenges of our time. This year’s report also recognizes the importance of partner countries’ contributions, lists its top contributors to core and other resources, and describes how core resources underpin all of its work.
The report is available online here in English.
