UNDP in Action 2009/2010: Delivering on Commitments

Published on 10 May 2010 42 pages

Report Summary

This report takes stock of achievements made in 2009/2010 and provides momentum for meeting future demands.  In 2009, in many of the countries where it operates, UNDP continued to experience a high demand for development support in its areas of specialization particularly covering poverty reduction and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); democratic governance; crisis prevention and recovery; and environment and sustainable development.

On the verge of the 2010 United Nations Global MDG Summit, 2009 was a year for UNDP to take stock of progress made and to accelerate the work needed to achieve the MDGs by the 2015 deadline.  At the same time, the global eco­nomic crisis required an urgent response from UNDP, especially in terms of helping countries to identify and protect the most vulnerable.
