The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Government of Pakistan- through the Young Peace and Development Corps (YPDC) and the Accountability Lab Pakistan today launched the country’s first Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) 16 Innovation Challenge. The Innovation Challenge is a month-long competition through which young Pakistanis can submit creative ideas related to issues of peace, justice, and accountability. Twenty finalists will be selected from around the country for a two-day workshop in Islamabad to develop and pitch their ideas, after which winners will be supported by UNDP and the Accountability Lab Pakistan.
We work collectively with Pakistan's people and government on developing & supporting nationally-driven solutions to challenges & improving livelihoods.
What exactly do we do and who is involved? Take a look at the people we work with and projects we do in Pakistan.
Pakistan's Vision 2025 reaffirms the need to make economic growth inclusive and sustainable in order to eradicate poverty. It also recognises that poverty is multidimensional, encompassing not only monetary deprivation but also the inaccessibility of healthcare, education and other amenities for all communities across the country.
In accordance with the Government's commitment to eradicate poverty, this report presents Pakistan's first national Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) based on the Alkire- Foster methodology. It has three dimensions: education, health and living standards. To tailor the measure to Pakistan's context and public policy priorities, 15 indicators were used for this national measure, instead of the 10 employed for the global measure.
UNDP is working with the Government of Pakistan, civil society, national partners and the people of Pakistan to help find solutions to persistent development challenges.
We work to build lasting institutional capacity, provide technical expertise to improve development outcomes, and help link the Government and people of Pakistan to innovative global solutions in areas such as improved data quality and collection, better environmental management, climate change finance and adaptation, strong and accountable governance mechanisms and capacities to respond effectively to conflict and disasters.
