The first UNDP Horn of Africa Resident Representatives forum closed with commitments on strengthening development ties across borders through support for joint analysis, planning and action.
The forum concluded that the future of the Horn depends, in good measure, on taking steps to help transform development conditions on the ground, whether to combat poverty, address the connected challenges of rapid population growth, climate change and sustainability, or promote peaceful and inclusive societies. UNDP leadership in the sub-region expressed their commitment in supporting a development paradigm shift from vulnerability and crisis to sustainable development and economic prosperity’.
UNDP’s Horn of Africa forum is an annual platform that brings together UNDP Resident Representatives from Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, and Sudan to discuss cross-border development planning and cooperation in the region.
