Statement by UNDP Administrator on Earthquake in Morocco

We are deeply saddened by the loss of life and damage reported following the devastating earthquake in Morocco.

Initial indications point to widespread devastation leaving many affected families vulnerable and in need of urgent help. 

As subsequent recovery efforts begin, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) stands ready - with the rest of the United Nations family - to support national efforts for rescue and relief, and to work with affected communities to cope with this tragedy and build forward.
