Men and women often have different roles and responsibilities in society and therefore experience climate change impacts in different ways.

This country-driven work is carried out under a global programme known as Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag), jointly coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Representatives from joint FAO-UNDP NAP-Ag Programme connect sectoral adaptation plans with achievement of Paris Goals and 2030 Agenda
Migration and displacement are significant and complex development challenges that require a multi-faceted and multi-stakeholder response. Of the 258 million international migrants in 2017, 106 million were from Asia, remitting $256 billion to their home countries. Further, the number of those displaced globally has increased to 68.5 million due to conflicts, climate change, and disasters induced by natural hazards, many of which have occurred in Asia and the Pacific.
21 August 2018, Siem Reap – While there has been extraordinary economic progress in the ASEAN region, pockets of multi-dimensional poverty remain. If those who have been left behind – the poorest of the poor – are to be reached, governments need to adopt new approaches that are people-centred and empower and equip local governments to take innovative action.
These were among the key takeaways from ASEAN-China-UNDP Symposium on Localising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Realizing Poverty Eradication, held this week in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, UN Member States pledged to ensure “no one will be left behind” and to “endeavour to reach the furthest behind first”.
This paper advances a framework that governments and stakeholders can use to act on their pledge in a way that enables and accelerates progress to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It also seeks to inform the manner in which UNDP works with countries to implement the 2030 Agenda.

Background and Executive Summary
The Connecting Business initiative (CBi), launched at the World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016, aims to transform the way the private sector engages before, during and after crises. It is the only joint initiative between United Nations organizations that engages the private sector at the intersection of the humanitarian, development and peace agendas.
Since the Commitment to Action1 was signed by the Secretary-General and eight United Nations Principals (and endorsed by the World Bank and the International Organization for Migration) at the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, much progress has been made in advancing and operationalizing the New Way of Working (NWOW) and strengthening humanitarian development collaboration as envisioned in the Agenda for Humanity.
