New Development Landscape: Roles of the UN and UNDP

Friday, April 20, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm


Achim Steiner
Administrator, United Nations Development Program

Masood Ahmed
President, Center for Global Development

The United Nations Development Program’s (UNDP) bold four-year Strategic Plan sets out to deliver solutions to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality, and build resilience to crises in order to help countries achieve the 2030 Agenda. But as the UN system grapples with funding challenges, as private finance is further mobilized for development, and as technological advances shape the development landscape, what is UNDP’s comparative advantage? We look forward to discussing these issues with UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner and key stakeholders.
