The People’s Republic of China and UNDP Pakistan sign US$4 million agreement to support crisis-affected areas of FATA and Balochistan
"Necessity is the mother of invention”: tradition, women in public life, and the space for innovation
What do young Pakistani entrepreneurs need to ease their journey to success? How can they contribute to the country’s sustainable development and build a brighter future for themselves? Through design thinking, a revolutionary framework for innovation, we can envisage what can be, and chart out the actions required to achieve that future.
We work collectively with Pakistan's people and government on developing & supporting nationally-driven solutions to challenges & improving livelihoods.
What exactly do we do and who is involved? Take a look at the people we work with and projects we do in Pakistan.
Pakistan's Vision 2025 reaffirms the need to make economic growth inclusive and sustainable in order to eradicate poverty. It also recognises that poverty is multidimensional, encompassing not only monetary deprivation but also the inaccessibility of healthcare, education and other amenities for all communities across the country.
In accordance with the Government's commitment to eradicate poverty, this report presents Pakistan's first national Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) based on the Alkire- Foster methodology. It has three dimensions: education, health and living standards. To tailor the measure to Pakistan's context and public policy priorities, 15 indicators were used for this national measure, instead of the 10 employed for the global measure.
UNDP is working with the Government of Pakistan, civil society, national partners and the people of Pakistan to help find solutions to persistent development challenges.
We work to build lasting institutional capacity, provide technical expertise to improve development outcomes, and help link the Government and people of Pakistan to innovative global solutions in areas such as improved data quality and collection, better environmental management, climate change finance and adaptation, strong and accountable governance mechanisms and capacities to respond effectively to conflict and disasters.
