UNDP Pakistan Annual Report 2021

UNDP Pakistan Annual Report 2021

July 8, 2022

In 2021, UNDP continued its long-standing partnership with Pakistan to achieve its development goals and to ensure that no one is left behind.

At the request of the government and the Global Fund, UNDP was pleased to launch a 2.5-year programme last year to combat HIV and AIDS which created new opportunities and strengthened partnerships with communities and government for this purpose. 

We also renewed our support to Pakistan's efforts to achieve its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), advancing SDG localization at both federal and provincial levels, providing technical inputs to strategies, policy analyses and budgets, and showcasing progress towards the SDGs through a Voluntary National Review. 

Pakistan is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. With our support, in 2021 the government demonstrated its commitment to climate action with renewed Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for the United Nations Climate Conference (COP26), and the revised, more inclusive National Climate Change Policy, with strengthened mitigation efforts.
