The first annual progress review of UNDP’s Country Programme Document (CPD) (2018-2022) took place on 11 September 2019 at Singha Durbar. At the meeting, partner organizations urged UNDP to focus more on accelerating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) localization process while keeping the federal structure in mind.
