UNDP and the United Nations General Assembly - 2012
As world leaders convene in New York for the 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to tackle major global issues such as poverty and hunger, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will be involved in a series of key events on issues ranging from sustainable development to Rule of Law in an effort to promote the acceleration of progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
UNDP co-hosted and participated in one of the largest and most global conversations in history. Local “meet-ups” were held in nearly 100 countries. From Mogadishu to San Salvador; from Islamabad to Dakar, innovative technology experts, citizens, celebrities, and activists came together with one shared goal: to unlock the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place.
This General Assembly convened its first-ever high-level meeting devoted to the rule of law at national and international levels. UNDP has worked closely with countries around the globe to support their democratic transitions and national-led efforts to re-establish justice and security.

- Meet Josephine, a courageous Ebola survivor who lost 29 loved ones to the outbreak of the disease in Liberia. After the crisis she adopted six children that lost their families to the epidemic as well. Global health crises like this one can undo years of development work. That's why Goal 17, partnerships for the Goals, is so important. Only a strong coalition of partners with a coordinated approach can contain these emergencies and help communities recover from the long-term impact. #GlobalGoals | #Pandas4GlobalGoals 39 minutes ago
