UNDP, with support from DFID and the Bangladesh government, is rolling out $1.5 million in emergency support for 50,000 low-income urban families. Coronavirus prevention awareness is being shared and hygiene kits are being distributed, addressing SDG3 and SDG10. UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner said “As we work through response and recovery from the shocks of the pandemic, the SDGs need to be designed into the DNA of global recovery. They provide a blueprint for a more equitable and sustainable future.” Photo: UNDP Bangladesh/Fahad Kaizer
