Participation in Korea Launch of UNDP Human Development Report (HDR) 2016

May 16, 2017

UNPOG participated and delivered a presentation on "Collaborative Governance and Open Government Data for Disaster Risk Reduction" during the Korea Launch of UNDP Human Development Report (HDR) 2016 “Human Development for Everyone.”

The report calls for far greater attention to empowering the most marginalized in society, and recognizes the importance of giving them greater voice in decision-making processes. For more information on the report, please visit: http://www.undp.org/content/seoul_policy_center/en/home/presscenter/pressreleases/2017/03/21/world-s-most-marginalized-still-left-behind-by-global-development-priorities-undp-report-.html

UNPOG's presentation was very well received since it focused both on the challenge (disaster risk reduction) and the means of implementation (open government data). The interview with Arirang News could be found via: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMr4cY7fBBc

Taking this opportunity, UNPOG also explored possible areas for cooperation with UNDP Seoul Policy Center and IOM.
