UNFPA chief: New development architecture will mean adaptation, more cooperation
The architecture of the development agenda and how it will be financed has changed, but the U.N. Population Fund is adapting and looking to new partnerships and innovative financing to continue to promote reproductive health and family planning.
“I think that management of resources and connectivity between countries – south-south cooperation, technology transfer, all of those things – will be key as we go forward,” Babatunde Osotimehin, the executive director of UNFPA, told Devex in a recent interview.
There is still unfinished business when it comes to the Millennium Development Goals, especially on maternal mortality, and UNFPA will work with governments to encourage them to budget more for family planning and maternal health services, he said.
