This second Annual Report of UNDP-BCPR, Outlook 2007, provides an overview of how UNDP has continued to increase its efforts to deliver tangible results in preventing crisis and promoting recovery. Since its inception in 2001, the Bureau has sought to promote new ways of doing business--faster, earlier and in riskier situations--to restore the quality of life for those who have been affected by disaster or violent conflict.
Many tragic events of the past decade-whether those caused by natural disaster or armed conflict-have clearly demonstrated the disastrous effects crises have on national development. The Bureau has endeavored to take this point a step further, supporting the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) country offices in their efforts to integrate crisis prevention and recovery as a core component of their development work.
