Inclusive Development and Poverty Eradication
Supports regional implementation of those elements of the 2030 Agenda that relate to inequality (focusing on multiple dimensions beyond income inequality only), poverty, food security, health and well-being, inclusive growth, decent work, and governance, with a focus on macro- and micro-level policy issues and priorities.
This Thematic Working Group will focus on:
- Supporting the efforts of decision makers, UN agencies, and civil society organizations in the region by producing policy-oriented research and analysis on specific topics in inclusive development and poverty eradication, in the form of policy briefs. The TWG will draw from the resources and expertise of its members by integrating and synthesizing available research and policy analysis.
- Encouraging regional/sub-regional initiatives in specific areas which require coordinated effort by multiple agencies, with a specific focus on ASEAN, SAARC and Pacific sub-regions.
- Assisting UN agencies, Government counterparts and civil society organizations in exchanging good practices, lessons and strategies for developing more robust and comprehensive interventions and policies aimed at reducing poverty and inequality, and eradicating hunger.
- Selecting and implementing regionally-oriented activities that will have the greatest impact toward moving forward the 2030 Agenda at country level and will work with the regional UNDG Peer Support Group for integration of common global and regional priorities, commitments and good practices in national and UN country team planning processes including UNDAFs, as may apply or be requested.
