what makes this plan different?
Key strategic shifts will transform the way we work.
We will integrate the effects of megatrends – from ageing to climate change to people on the move – into programming, scale-up high-quality services, expand our humanitarian response capacity and address mental health and psychosocial issues. We will tackle gender norms that are holding back women and girls, look even more closely at local contexts and underlying social and cultural barriers, and reinvigorate and expand partnerships old and new. Internally, we will ensure that UNFPA has the right people in the right place with the right skills to lead our global transformative agenda.
Countries will take the lead to determine which modes of engagement will have the most impact in their cultural and geographic context, producing a more decentralized plan for what works. This will include advocacy and policy dialogue and support; knowledge management; capacity development; service delivery; and coordination, partnership and South-South and triangular cooperation.
