Crisis Prevention and Recovery Thematic Trust Fund
Throughout 2014, millions of people were plunged into or affected by ongoing crises in Syria and Iraq, the Central African Republic, the Philippines, South Sudan, Ukraine and West Africa. The Crisis Prevention and Recovery Thematic Trust Fund (CPR TTF) ensured UNDP was equipped to take the immediate action humanitarian situations demand. Assistance helped to protect people, stem the erosion of development gains and accelerate recovery. It also advanced prevention and preparedness, including through measures aimed at addressing the root causes of crises, reducing the risks of disaster, and strengthening community and national resilience. There is a need to lower vulnerability and increase resilience, and UNDP is doing this through a renewed focus on inclusive growth, livelihoods and employment, effective delivery of public services, and well-functioning judicial systems to uphold the rule of law and ensure citizen security.
The results showcased in this annual report were achieved with the support of many partners. UNDP is grateful to the partners and donors who have supported the CPR TTF and are supporting its evolution under the new trust fund architecture to be launched in 2016. These contributions and partnerships have improved people’s lives around the globe, as this report underscores, and continue to strengthen the foundation for durable, peaceful development in the post-2015 era.
