UN Development Programme launches new website

11 Dec 2009

(Suva, Fiji) – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Multi Country Office based in Fiji today announces its newly re-designed website, http://www.undp.org.fj

“UNDP is based on the principles of accountability and transparency and one way of showing how the organization intends to move the Pacific forward is to have an effective and up to date website,” the UNDP Resident Representative a.i (acting), Mr Toily Kurbanov said.

People turn to the Internet as their first source of information and having a website is a much cost-effective way of reaching out to our partners in Governments, non government organizations, the Media, donors and the general Pacific public.

“The website is a great resource tool where information on UNDP’s work in Fiji and the nine other countries (Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Republic of Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) is readily available. The UNDP website has been re-designed to allow people to easily find their way through our projects in the region,” Mr Kurbanov said.

As in the past before websites, people would turn to the traditional forms of printed publication or the good old radio and television for information however the internet has proven to be more far reaching at just a click of the button.

UNDP Fiji serves Fiji and the nine countries in the broad areas of Good Governance and Human Rights, Poverty Reduction and the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals, Crisis Prevention and Recovery and Environmental Sustainability.
