UNDP Africa at a Glance
Aiming to eradicate poverty, violence and hunger, UNDP Africa is assisting African countries to translate economic growth into long-lasting, inclusive human development.
The Africa MDG Report 2013 concludes that while Africa is the world’s second fastest growing region, its rate of poverty reduction is insufficient to reach the target of halving extreme poverty by 2015.
