UNDP positions itself as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) integrator who connects all relevant knowledge and partners to support countries to achieve the SDGs in an inclusive and integrated manner. UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH), along with the Pacific Office in Suva, supports the 24 UNDP Country Offices in Asia and the Pacific in various development agendas to achieve the SDGs by providing easy access to knowledge through high quality integrated advisory services and technical support based on global applied research and UNDP lessons learnt. BRH also provides regional thought leadership, build partnerships and promote regional capacity building, which allow UNDP, governments and other development partners to identify, create and share knowledge relevant to solving urgent development challenges.
A new paradigm for green growth and employment creation is a ‘circular’ industrial system that is restorative by intention and design. The idea is that rather than discarding products before their value is fully utilized, we should use and re-use them. The proposition is that a circular economy, where products are designed for ease of recycling, reuse, disassembly and remanufacturing should replace the traditional, linear ‘take, make and dispose’ model that has dominated the economy since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Such approach that prevents waste generation at source itself will in most cases drastically reduce the volume of waste/pollution that need treatment, and thereby also associated costs. This requires changing input materials like replacing toxic or harmful raw materials with those that are less toxic, use of renewable materials, use of cheaper and locally available materials, use of materials that have less carbon and energy footprints, more purified raw materials, less polluting materials, etc.
