Over the past several years, UNDP has made significant progress in strengthening partnerships and marshalling resources to support progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. UNDP is coordinating and nurturing its working relationships with donor countries, civil society organizations, international financial institutions, regional development banks, the private sector and rest of the UN system and is now better prepared than ever to help attract human and financial assistance and use it effectively.

- Big thank you to everyone who attended Sri Lanka's First National Summit on Foresight and Innovation. We couldn't have done it without you! Wondering what the summit was all about? Foresight and Innovation are rapidly becoming tools that governments and other partners use as it familiarizes development practitioners with futuristic thinking to create a development sector that is forward looking, innovative and visionary. Thus the two day Summit, focused on how to use these tools to create the world we want and need by 2030.
