A recurrent motto that accompanies many international meetings and forums these days is the speed, scale and complexity of change in the world around us. For a development organization like the United Nations Development Programme, this means that today's development challenges, compared to twenty years ago, are more complex and inter-connected. A sense of environmental, economic and social urgency to deal with these challenges is adding to the pressure. “Business as usual” is not enough anymore and bold thinking is required for breakthroughs and true transformation.
This ‘Next Generation UNDP’ continues to work on reducing poverty, strengthening governance, resilient development, environment, clean energy and gender equality, but for each of these six signature solutions aims to bring innovation, a platform way of working, agility and acceleration in our services.
