Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Ethiopia
UNDP has a presence on the ground in over 170 countries and territories and decades of concrete development experience in countries ranging from fragile States to middle-income countries like Brazil and Indonesia. This, combined with our four focus areas — poverty reduction and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); democratic governance; crisis prevention and recovery; and environment and sustainable development — make us uniquely situated and qualified to answer the UN’s call for a better and more sustainable future.
Remarks by Ad Melkert, UN Under-Secretary General and Associate Administrator of UNDP ECOSOC Luncheon on Climate-related conflict and the Millennium Development Goals
Excellencies, Distinguished Delegates, Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am very pleased to have the opportunity to join this important discussion on climate-related conflict and Millennium Development Goals.
Climate change stands as a roadblock in the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. It threatens the chance of millions in Africa, Asia and Central and South America to escape poverty.
