No individual person, government, UN agency or civil society organization can hope to find the solution alone. This is why the new UNDP will reinvigorate one of its unique strengths: its ability to convene and connect innovators across societies, governments and the UN system. It will be a clearinghouse for cutting-edge ideas to overcome development challenges. The key 2030 Agenda principle of leaving no one behind and stamping out inequality will remain at the core of everything we do.
Our Strategic Plan, which takes effect today, is the blueprint for the evolution of our work over the next four years. The UNDP envisioned in the plan acknowledges that solving these problems will need all of us to work better together, at all levels.
