The General Assembly, in the 2007 Triennial Comprehensive Policy Review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system (TCPR), encourages the UN development system to intensify its collaboration at the country and regional levels towards strengthening national capacities, in support of national development priorities, through the common country assessment, when required, and the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). It recognizes the potential of the UNDAF and its results matrix as the collective, coherent and integrated programming and monitoring framework for country-level contributions.

Turkmenistan hosts international conference on the role of transport and transit corridors Transport

The role of transport and transit corridors in ensuring international cooperation,  stability and sustainable development will be discussed at a high-level international  conference in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, from 3 to 4 September 2014. The event  is organized by the Government of Turkmenistan, in collaboration with UNECE,  the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, the  Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the International Road  Transport Union.

UNECE Executive Secretary Christian Friis Bach will deliver one of the opening  addresses, highlighting some of the key contributions UNECE is making to develop  sustainable transport and transit corridors in the region. These include, among  others: the Euro-Asian Transport Links project, which identified 9 rail and 9 road  routes that could offer quicker and cheaper alternatives to sea fare between Europe  and Asia, once proper infrastructures and border crossing procedures are in place;  international legal instruments to facilitate the transit of goods across borders, such  as the 1982 Harmonization Convention or the 1975 TIR Convention; on-going efforts  to develop a unified railway regulatory framework to expedite rail border crossings  between regions and to improve the competitiveness of international rail freight  services; or United Nations Road safety Conventions developed and administered  by UNECE. While in Ashgabat, the Executive Secretary will host a series of bilateral  meetings with high-level officials, including, Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of  Ministers and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan Rashid Meredov, Deputy  Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan responsible for Transport and  Communications Satlyk Satlykov, OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier and  Deputy Executive Secretary of UNESCAP Shun-ichi Murata.

High-level participants, Ministers, Deputies and other high ranking representatives  of international organizations and participating countries will discuss the role of  transport and transit corridors in fostering economic development and strengthening  international cooperation. Financing mechanisms, policy and technical obstacles  to closer integration as well as facilitation measures which could promote faster  integration of national economies and transport systems in the global economy will  also be addressed. The conference will also consider how transport transit corridors  contribute to economic, social and environmentally sustainable development, as well  as strategies and policy coordination needed to maximize the benefits of seamless  transport services.

"Human Development Report - 2014", published by UNDP shows the growth of the human development index of Turkmenistan

«Доклад о человеческом развитии - 2014», опубликованный ПРООН свидетельствует о росте индекса человеческого развития в Туркменистане

Human development progress in developing countries of Europe & Central Asia has slowed, and the region continues to face significant socioeconomic and environmental challenges, according to the 2014 Human Development Report released today by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The report indicates growing figures for Human development index of Turkmenistan, which stands on top in the list of countries with medium human development index. The report also reveals that the country enjoys relatively high equality of education, health and living standards.

Entitled Sustaining Human Progress: Reducing Vulnerabilities and Building Resilience, the Report, released in Tokyo today by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, UNDP Administrator Helen Clark and Human Development Report Office Director Khalid Malik, provides a human development perspective on vulnerability and proposes ways to strengthen resilience.

The report analyzes life cycle vulnerabilities and identifies moments in life (e.g., early childhood, old age) in which shocks can have greater impact. It also explores structural vulnerabilities – those that persist and compound over time as a result of discrimination and institutional failings to the disadvantage of groups such as ethnic minorities, the disabled and the long-term unemployed.

Social exclusion and structural vulnerabilities remain a challenge for Europe and Central Asia. Many developing countries in the region report low access to social services and social protection. Ethnic minorities like the Roma, as well as people with disabilities, the long-term unemployed, migrants, and residents of isolated rural and mountainous areas are especially vulnerable to development setbacks.
