Next Generation UNDP
Working in such a dynamic region, where challenges are at their most complex and the rate of change is unprecedented, UNDP is shifting away from conventional approaches to development and moving towards more boldly innovative responses. Here, you will find examples of how UNDP in the Arab States is doing development differently – identifying new and uncommon sources of information, engaging with new partners, and designing and testing new approaches. Take a look and explore what we call #NextGenUNDP.
