• UNDP Pakistan Annual Report 2015
    Apr 19, 2016

    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.

  • One UN Programme (2009 - 2013)
    Feb 13, 2015

    Pakistan was the largest of eight pilot countries for ‘Delivering as One’, an initiative designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the UN. The Pakistan UN One Programme I (OP-I) was launched in February 2009, initially to run for two years but later extended to five years. OP-I united 19 resident UN agencies and one non-resident agency and provided support to development initiatives of the Government of Pakistan through five Joint Programmes on: Agriculture, Rural Development and Poverty Reduction (ARP); Disaster Risk Management (DRM); Education; Environment; and Health and Population, with four crosscutting issues of Gender Equality, Civil Society Engagement, Human Rights and Refugees. With official closure of OP-I in 2012, 2013 was a transition year for UN Agencies in Pakistan: on one hand, the year saw the launch of the UN One Programme II (2013-2017), on the other, some Agencies continued with OP-I activities to make use of unutilized funds until December 2013.
