2017 UNDP-GEF Annual Performance Report
In this 10th annual performance report of the UNDP Global Environmental Finance Unit, we show how investments in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—on affordable and clean energy (7), climate action (13), life below water (14), and life on land (15)—accelerate the achievement of other goals aimed at eradicating poverty (1), achieving zero hunger (2), achieving gender equality (5), reducing inequalities (10), and building strong institutions (16).
Throughout this report, we weave a story of transformational change that can be realized by addressing the key drivers of environmental degradation through multifaceted and integrated approaches. From the global to the local level, the impacts emerging from our work demonstrate progress being made toward realizing environmental and development benefits.
Our work contributes to advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment—as outlined in the Gender in Action section of this report—and the Agenda 2030 principle to ‘leave no one behind’.
