Voices of Change UNDP in the Arab States 2011-2015
The vision of the Regional Bureau for Arab States of UNDP is to support the sustainable eradication of extreme poverty and significant reduction of inequalities in the span of a single generation in every Arab country.
The complexities of the recent period have challenged the Regional Bureau for Arab States of UNDP to rethink development in the context of the Arab countries. What is needed across the Arab world today is pursuit of an integrated development agenda, one that spans sustainable development, inclusive and effective governance, and resilience — the three areas of work of the UNDP Strategic Plan 2014- 2017. Empowerment of youth and women are at the heart of this agenda.
