A new plan for a new era: UN development agency charts course for development in 21st century

“The UN’s development agency, the United Nations Development Programme, today launched a new and ambitious blueprint for development in the 21st century at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

“This is a new plan for a new era,” said Achim Steiner, Administrator of UNDP, at the Executive Board in New York.  “The dramatic changes we see in the world have occurred on such a scale and at such a pace that our institutions are struggling to keep up. More is being demanded of us.”

President of the Board H.E. Mr. Ib Petersen, Permanent Representative of Denmark, said: “UNDP’s new strategic plan marks a welcome new direction for the Organisation to support the realisation of the 2030 Agenda. On behalf of the Executive Board, I welcome today’s endorsement of the plan as an essential tool for UNDP to continue to evolve and adapt over the next four years.”

“The nations of the world have committed to achieving the 2030 Agenda and the UN system has been tasked to support them,” Steiner continued. “This is the driving force of the Secretary-General’s UN reform agenda, and we must rise to the challenge.””
