Remarks by UNDP Resident Representative, Tony Lisle - Maldives 4th MDG Report, Closure WorkshopSep 12, 2013It is important for this MDGR to be utilized as a tool for advocacy and creating awareness on key developmental challenges facing the Maldives, especially in an opportune time when the country will be moving forward with the post 2015 developmental agenda and long-term development planning.
Remarks by UNDP Resident Representative, Tony Lisle Building Partnerships for Climate Change Adaptation ForumJun 27, 2013In increasing the resilience of the Maldivian tourism industry, each one of us has a role to play. Government agencies, NGOs, associations and the private sector, we all have to work together and share information so that we become better partners in our efforts to make the Maldivian tourism industry resilient to the effects of climate change. It is a challenging task before us, but I believe, with strong partnerships, we can make small but important incremental steps towards achieving a Maldives that is more resilient to climate change.
