Regional Hub in Asia and the Pacific
The Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific established the Bangkok Regional Hub as well as the multi-disciplinary Pacific Centre in Suva with a focus on the Pacific Islands.
The main priority of the Regional Hub is to provide UNDP Country Offices in Asia and the Pacific with easy access to knowledge through high quality advisory services based on global applied research and UNDP lessons learned.
The second priority is to build partnerships and promote regional capacity building initiatives, which allow UNDP, governments and other development partners to identify, create and share knowledge relevant to solving urgent development challenges.
The Bangkok Regional Hub mainly focuses on support to Democratic Governance and Peacebuilding, Climate and Disaster Resilience, and Inclusive Growth with an overarching effort on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
