It is our pleasure to invite you to a Brown Bag Lunch organized jointly by the UNDP Brazil and the Knowledge, Innovation and Capacity Group (KICG) of the Bureau for Development Policy (BDP). This Brown Bag lunch is a follow-up activity of the International Youth Day 2012 (12 August) that will be held on August 10 under the theme ‘Building a Better World: Partnering with Youth’.
On July 24 UNDP Administrator Helen Clark shared with the UNDP staff the key outcomes of the Annual Session 2012 of the UNDP, UNFPA, and UNOPS Executive Board held from 25 to 29 June in Geneva. Delegations supported UNDP’s focus on MDG acceleration and the post-2015 agenda. They also urged UNDP to focus special attention and measures on Least Developed Countries, and stressed in particular the need for greater use of national capacities in developing countries, including through technology transfer, financing mechanisms, and a focus on youth employment and on the role of the private sector.
