Headline: Combating poverty and sustainable development: Switzerland renews its support for the UN development program
Despite progress in implementing the goals for sustainable development of the 2030 Agenda, around 600 million people worldwide live in extreme poverty. Due to Covid, this number has risen sharply for the first time in decades. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) plays a crucial role in the fight against poverty. On November 18, the Federal Council therefore decided to contribute 52.7 million francs to the UNDP.
