UNDP’s current plan emphasizes a risk-informed approach. All countries face a wide range of risks, shocks and crises; which can range from being localized or short-term e.g. disease outbreaks and political tensions to protracted crises such as conflicts and major droughts. The nexus of climate change, disasters and conflict is important, with growing trends of resource insecurity, social polarization, and displacement in various parts of the planet.
The SDG Partnership on Resilience focuses on the topic of sustainable forestry (SDG target 15.2).
