Nicholas Rosellini, Deputy Assistant Administrator & Deputy Regional Director Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific UNDP, talks about UNDP's Strategic Plan 2014-17
Changing with the World
Helping countries to achieve the simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion.
In this video interview, we ask Nicholas Rosellini, Deputy Assistant Administrator & Deputy Regional Director Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific UNDP, about the salient features of the new UNDP strategic plan, and how it is different from the last one.
With the changing world as the backdrop, and building on our core strengths, our vision is focused on making the next big breakthrough in development: to help countries achieve the simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion.
This is a vision within reach, with the eradication of extreme poverty and major reductions in overall poverty feasible within a generation. It should be possible as well to make significant inroads against income and non- income measures of inequality and exclusion within this time fame.
This ambitious vision will require an institution that meets benchmarks for organizational effectiveness that match or exceed the highest standards set in its peer community. It will also demand that we organize our work around a focused set of outcomes. These outcomes will support the priorities and needs of each country and region, and capture the development changes UNDP will contribute towards directly, significantly and variably during the course of the Strategic Plan. In so doing, we will align our approach to results with other United Nations agencies.
