About the Internship:
An acute pressure on the Government to accelerate economic recovery, creating a risk that economic imperatives may dilute environmental sustainability considerations.
UNDP has globally rolled out the COVID response strategy across nations and the next phase is designed to help decision-makers look beyond recovery, towards 2030, making choices and managing complexity and uncertainty in four main areas: governance, social protection, green economy, and digital disruption. It encompasses our role in technically leading the UN’s socio-economic response. In this regard, UNDP India is initiating a Project titled “Green Recovery Pathway for India – transitioning towards a green and resilient COVID-19 recovery”. This programme aims to address the critical need to advocate for an inclusive and environmentally sensitive response to COVID-19 that resets towards sustainable and inclusive pathways to recovery to build back better.
