UNDP Annual Report 2013:Supporting Global Progress
This report covers the UNDP's latest efforts to ensure a safer, more equitable and more sustainable future by engaging with supporting countries.
- UNDP has assisted the development of the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange, the first of its type in sub-Saharan Africa. We've helped 100,000 farmers adapt agricultural practices to become resilient to weather changes.
- Mobile legal services units in Sri Lanka have aided over 175,000 people to access documents—and their rights—related to marriage, property and citizenship. Streamlined one-stop assistance encourages public use and reduces corruption.
- A UNDP-backed programme in Colombia has helped around 40,000 people displaced by internal conflict resettle in new localities. The idea is simple: give people the tools they need to start over, from small plots of land to core social services.
- In Croatia, with Global Environment Facility (GEF) financing, UNDP has aided systematic energy monitoring raising efficiencies in around 11,000 public buildings in 95 out of 127 cities.
