The new edition of UNDP’s Development Advocate Nepal focuses on digging out and sharing fresh perspectives on how Nepal and other countries in the region can steer themselves out of this unprecedented crisis, and not just return to normalcy or where they were before COVID-19 but to a more sustainable and resilient state. It will explore the lessons learned and new ideas invented in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic – this all to help advocate for a better world that is capable of withstanding similar shocks in the future.
