Leadership in the 21st century
The global task of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030 was immense even before the pandemic.
And as the war in Ukraine, as well as conflict and political instability in places such as Yemen, Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Myanmar have brutally demonstrated, today’s challenges are a fast-moving target—interconnected puzzles of risk that call for systemic not piecemeal solutions.
We need political leadership that is bold, forward thinking, trusted, open, inclusive, and committed to real change.
UNDP and IPU continue to demonstrate their commitment to shaping parliaments across the world that are fit for their purpose and stand ready to meet the immense tests that this century now poses.
Through this and many other important partnerships, we’re working to transform governance so that it sustains peace and supports human rights and sustainable development.
