UN calls for greater regional cooperation to ensure sustainable and resilient recovery from COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific
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.
Business integrity goes well beyond anti-corruption compliance, and touches upon diversity, inclusion and gender equality. Phenomena like discrimination, gender pay gap, exclusion from business opportunities, bullying, and sexual and other types of harassment are all examples of integrity flaws that not only hamper the internal environment of a company, but also impact the lives of their employees and the communities in which they live. Recognizing and addressing these problems is key for companies that want to lead in both diversity and inclusion and business integrity, ultimately contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The report is the outcome of a research conducted across five of the ASEAN countries participating in the project: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam. It provides a snapshot of catalytic factors to foster gender equal leadership.
