Voices around the world are demanding leadership and action in 2015 on poverty, inequality and climate change. These universal challenges demand global action, and this year presents unprecedented opportunities for achieving the future we want. This is the year when world leaders come together to adopt a new agenda for sustainable development. The new global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years, beginning with a historic pledge to end poverty.

For decades now, UNDP has demonstrated great effectiveness in influencing policy and building capacity as a trusted partner for stakeholders at the national, regional and global levels. Yet UNDP recognizes that it must do all of this better, and with a sharper focus, to meet present challenges and continue to deliver lasting and measurable development impact.

The 2014-2015 Annual Report highlights UNDP’s key actions over the past year and their impact on the lives of beneficiaries around the world. The report also outlines the ongoing restructuring process that will ensure UNDP is fit for purpose in the new post-2015 landscape.
