United Nations Development Programme
Economic growth will not reduce poverty, improve equality and produce jobs unless it is inclusive. Inclusive growth is also essential for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The globalization process, when properly managed, becomes an important ingredient for inclusive growth. In this context, UNDP works to make real improvements in people’s lives, opening up their choices and opportunities.
UNDP promotes inclusive and sustainable human development and works to reduce poverty in all its dimensions. We focus our efforts on making growth and trade benefit everyone in developing countries.
Environment and Energy
The poor are disproportionately affected by environmental degradation and lack of access to clean, affordable energy services. UNDP helps countries strengthen their capacity to address these challenges at the global, national and community levels, seeking out and sharing best practices, providing innovative policy advice and linking partners through pilot projects.
UNDP strengthens national capacity to manage the environment in a sustainable manner to advance poverty reduction efforts. Through our country teams in 135 developing countries, we help our partners build their capacity to integrate environmental considerations into development plans and strategies, establish effective partnerships, secure resources, and implement programmes to support sustainable, low-carbon, climate-resilient development pathways.
Rio+20 Sustainable Development Summit
The 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development, or “Rio+20” is a forum on how to make sustainable development a reality for seven billion people today, and to define the future we want for nine billion by 2050.
…the definition of “POVERTY” in pure logic, is a self incrimination result of WORLD GOVERNMENTS…! THEY BELIEVE, PRODUCE, POVERTY AND PEASANTS ! They run GOVERNMENTS BANKS AND INTEREST RATES, as one big example of Canada, and USA…!
…results of RIO+20 were only on paper with no real action, as they project a World of 9BILLION humans by 2050…! This will be the tipping point if 7BILLION isn’t already the tipping point to “un-sustainablitity” ! Especially under their WORLD MARKETS CAPITALISTIC MODEL of COMPETITION…!
…if they believe in a WORLD of 9BILLLION humans…! and what was implied, that they cannot do anything about, nor will do anything, is a clear “ultimatum”, they believe in making DOOM SCENARIOS !
…Canada is said to be wanting to leave the UNITED NATIONS ! And where is Canada’s help for World poverty and hunger ?
