UNDP Afghanistan: 20 Mobile HealthCare Teams Continue to Provide Essential Health Services to People in Need
UNDP is scaling-up our support to countries through “UNDP’s Climate Promise: Ambition, Acceleration and Mobilization.” UNDP will provide support to 100 countries to accelerate the enhancement of national climate pledges by 2020, building on our climate action portfolio in over 140 countries. And we are developing new ways of mobilizing all people to inform climate action.
We have been supporting countries since the very early stages of this crisis, having donated more than two million surgical masks and providing life supporting medical equipment such as x-ray machines, infrared thermometers, infusion pumps, protective suits, gloves and hand sanitizer.
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. UNDP in Asia and the Pacific delivers country and regional programmes in 36 countries through 25 UNDP Country Offices and the Bangkok Regional Hub to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
This policy brief evaluates the type of reinvigorated multilateralism, that is fostering more adequate global public good (GPG) provision under the present policymaking realities, and explore whether there already exists a momentum for such change on which to build further progress. The analysis suggests that such a reinvigorated multilateralism would have four distinguishing features. It would operate on the principle of fostering mutual compatibility between international cooperation and sovereignty; recognize GPGs as a new, additional type of public policy challenge, ending their current confounding with development assistance; adopt a mission-oriented approach to resolving GPG-related challenges; and integrate the rising number of autochthonous regional organizations as meso-level intermediaries between the ‘global’ and the ‘individual,’ including the ‘individual national’ into global governance. The policy brief recommends ways for translating these four reform ideas into innovations at the practical political level. Most just call for a massive rethinking, or put differently, more realism.
