UNDP Zambia was among the countries that attended the UNDP Crisis Response Package (CRP) training held in Istanbul Turkey from 20th to 26th May 2018. The main objective of the training was to enhance UNDP country office capacity to design, implement and monitor timely crisis and post-crisis livelihoods responses that promote a rapid return to sustainable development pathways. Critical cross-cutting issues, such as gender equality, environmental and social sustainability, private sector partnerships, and knowledge management and innovation, play a key role in the roll out of the CRP.
