New UNDP Official promises to assist Ethiopia on its sustainable goals


New United Nations Development Program (UNDP) representative to Ethiopia, Samuel Gbaydee Doe, has pledged to support Ethiopia’s efforts toward the realization of sustainable development ambitions.

Doe, who was assigned UNDP’s new resident representative to Ethiopia, said on Wednesday that “I am honored to lead UNDP Ethiopia at this critical juncture in the country’s history and sustainable development journey.”

“We will do our utmost to build upon the strong and enduring partnership between UNDP and the government and people of Ethiopia to accelerate the achievements of sustainable development aspirations as articulated in the Ten-Year Development Plan of Ethiopia (2021-2030) and the Homegrown Economic Reform Program,” he added.

Doe, in particular, singled out UNDP’s resolve to promote ongoing efforts in consolidating democratic institutions in the country, raising climate ambitions and protecting the environment, advancing peace support, pursuing the gender equality agenda as well as inclusive economic growth in the country.

According to the UNDP, the UN development agency will strive to uphold core UN principles by enhancing collaboration and partnerships, promoting gender and social inclusion, and fostering inclusive empowerment aligned with context-specific development efforts that prioritize local ownership and leadership.

The UNDP said that its involvement in the East African country aims to support the nation’s transition toward achieving middle-income status in the near future, by addressing conflict drivers and creating conducive environments for increased job opportunities through the development of small and medium enterprises
