Norway and UNDP Vietnam support Human Rights in Vietnam and steps have been taken to ensure support of the Government in Vietnam, the Norwegian Embassy in Vietnam writes in a recent update that reads:
Last Friday, Norwegian Ambassador Grete Løchen and UNDP Resident Representative Caitlin Wiesen signed an agreement, under which Norway and UNDP Vietnam will jointly support the Government of Vietnam to deliver their commitments under the key United Nations human right mechanisms.
“Promoting human rights has been a global priority of Norway. This event is another proof of Norway’s close partnership with UNDP and Vietnam in the implementation of the SDGs and leaving no one behind” Ambassador Grete Løchen said.
The United Nations Development Programme Vietnam (UNDP – Vietnam) officially started in 1978. Since then UNDP has been working closely with the Government and other partners to expand the choices for people and ensure that everyone has equal access to opportunities to realize their full potential.
