    2016 was a landmark year for the UN in Pakistan, as we endeavoured to do better – and we succeeded, delivering better results for all the people of Pakistan. This Annual Report showcases the real-life impact of the UN’s humanitarian and development work across this vibrant country. This year witnessed the dawn of the 2030 Agenda, whose Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a clarion call for transformation – a pledge to transform lives and protect our planet. The Government of Pakistan has heeded this call, embracing the SDGs as Pakistan’s own Development Goals. As a UN team, we are supporting the Government to localise these goals, so that they truly transform the lives of all Pakistanis and the environment in which they live. By delivering together as “One UN”, we achieved greater efficiency and greater impacts. This fourth year of the One UN Programme II (OP II) saw our approach evolve, becoming more results-oriented and inclusive.

    The year 2016 marked the 50th anniversary of UNDP’s close partnership with the world’s governments and peoples to realize our shared dream of a world without poverty, inequality and injustice. In my first year as UNDP Country Director in Pakistan, I am honoured to have arrived at a moment in the country’s history which is full of excitement and potential, with intensifying focus on sustainable development, providing economic opportunities for youth and addressing climate change. Fortunately, Pakistan was spared major natural calamities this year, thanks in part to the hard work in improving preparedness and resilience by Government and its partners. This offered much needed breathing space to communities suffering from frequent hazards to enable them to look beyond meeting immediate needs and continue enhancing their living conditions without relapse.

    2015 was a year of transition. Globally, a historic agreement was struck by the nations of the world to limit global temperature rise due to climate change to 1.5°C. In 2015 we reached the deadline for the achievement of the MDGs and Pakistan fared unfavourably, achieving none of the goals. With recurrent natural disasters, insecurity, political turmoil, economic instability and lack of sustained leadership, progress on most indicators was limited.

    In 2014, the country faced significant challenges but also took steps towards new opportunities and hope. UNDP stood by Pakistan as it weathered a prolonged political crisis, relentless terrorist violence culminating in the barbaric Army Public School attack in Peshawar and the launch of a military operation in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) which led to the displacement of 96,434 families. We also confronted natural disasters including floods in Punjab and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
