UNDP head talks about extreme poverty amid the COVID-19 pandemic
Achim Steiner, the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, explains why the COVID-19 pandemic has been a significant factor in the rise of extreme poverty and what China's success in eradicating extreme poverty means to the world.
He also talks about how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the strategy of the United Nations' development programs and how China's experience in containing the coronavirus and in developing vaccines can help other countries fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the world faces a triple threat from pollution, climate change, and loss of biodiversity, what can the UNDP do to support the world's economies to create more sustainable growth? Steiner explains.
