David Payton, head of the UNDP delegation, talks about his organisation’s involvement at the country level. He says this is core business internationally and touches on the lives of real people. He believes scrutiny is healthy, but reminds us that the UN is mandated and is held accountable. He discusses the connections between gender, poverty alleviation and climate change get adequately reflected. He reminds us, in the multilateral process, there are swings when things are more difficult and others when it’s really good.
