UNDP in Egypt welcomes its newly appointed Resident Representative, Mr. Alessandro Fracassetti, to Egypt. Mr. Fracassetti has been appointed by UNDP Administrator, Mr. Achim Steiner, “to lead the UNDP office and its programme and operational activities in the Arab Republic of Egypt”.
Egypt has gone through many major political, social and economic developments since the revolution in January 2011, but was able to regain control over its capabilities. The country then began a new phase aimed at achieving sustainable economic and social development, strengthening political stability and security, combating terrorism, protecting borders, improving public services, consolidating principles of governance and tackling corruption.
This report highlights some of our results and presents UNDP’s experience using its integrated, transparent, and innovative role.
