The Philippines is among the most impacted countries by COVID-19 in ASEAN. The number of cases continue to rise dramatically with some estimating that as many as 150,000 people will be infected in Metro Manila alone. A prolonged crisis with large numbers affected will see the country severely challenged to respond effectively. Supporting inclusive response and recovery is critical but so, too, is building resilience to future crises. Commensurate with UNDP’s areas of expertise, the Government has welcomed our focus on three areas of assistance in order to mitigate the socio-economic impact of the crisis on the most vulnerable.
United Nations Development Programme was awarded the “Development Aid of the Year Award” for Biodiversity at the Mission:PHL Envoys & Expats Recognition Awards last April 4, 2019 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City.
UNDP has been working in the Philippines for over 40 years. Today, it continues to strengthen the country’s capacities at the national and local levels to promote democratic governance, sustainable management of natural resources, climate change adaptation and disaster risk management, and resilience and peacebuilding. In all its programmes, UNDP integrates human rights and gender equality, believing that everyone should have equal access to the benefits of development.
