Haoliang Xu: The Future of Development Cooperation in Asia and the Pacific
Oct 5, 2015
While we support the achievement of all 17 SDGs, UNDP has decided to especially focus on Goals 1, 10, and 16 -- poverty, inequality and governance.Our job is to support countries to eradicate poverty, and to do that in a way which simultaneously reduces inequality and exclusion, and avoids destruction of the environment. UNDP has been working on this agenda since the MDGs were launched, supporting countries to integrate such plans into their policies and working to strengthen capacity, share knowledge, and support access to finance.
