United Nations Development Program (UNDP)me annual report 2009

The 2009 annual report presents UNDP's work within its Strategic Plan 2008-2011: focusing efforts on reducing poverty, promoting democratic governance, supporting crisis prevention and recovery efforts and achieving sustainable development results in energy and environment, efforts that are crucial to achieving the MDGs, both in times of economic crisis and prosperity. A section is dedicated to UNDP's crisis prevention and recovery programming which is committed to strengthening UNDP's support to disaster-prone countries where capacity to manage and reduce disaster risks is currently insufficient. UNDP works with high-risk countries to establish methods of mitigation including early warning systems, building codes or disaster sensitive local development plans.
