REUTERS/Denis Balibouse UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's bid to slash funding for the United Nations would make it "impossible" for it to continue its essential work, a U.N. spokesman said on Wednesday, adding that the organization was ready to discuss reform with Washington. The Trump proposal cuts about a third from U.S. diplomacy and aid budgets, or nearly $19 billion. This includes cutting some $1 billion from a U.N. peacekeeping funding and a steep cut to funding for international organizations. The United States is the biggest U.N. contributor, paying 22 percent of the $5.4 billion core budget and 28.5 percent of the $7.9 billion peacekeeping budget. These assessed contributions are agreed by the 193-member U.N. General Assembly. "The figures presented would simply make it impossible for the U.N. to continue all of its essential work advancing peace, development, human rights and humanitarian assistance," Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said in a statement. Congress sets the federal government budget, and Republicans who control both houses and Democrats have said they do not support such drastic cuts. Trump has said the U.S. share of the U.N. budgets was "unfair." The General Assembly is currently negotiating the peacekeeping budget from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018 and will later this year negotiate the next U.N. regular budget. Trump wants to cap the U.S. peacekeeping contribution at 25 percent. The United States is reviewing each of the 16 U.N. peacekeeping missions as the annual mandates come up for renewal by the Security Council in a bid to cut costs. During a lunch with U.N. Security Council ambassadors at the White House last month, Trump described the U.S. contributions to the United Nations as "peanuts compared to the important work" as he pushed the world body to reform. "The Secretary-General is totally committed to reforming the United Nations," Dujarric said. "We stand ready to discuss with the United States and any other member state how best we can create a more cost-effective organization to pursue our shared goals and values." Trump's budget proposal included a 44 percent cut to funding for international organizations, but does not specify the cuts, other than "funding for organizations that work against U.S. foreign policy interests." The State Department said last month it was ending funding for the U.N. Population Fund, an agency focused on family planning and maternal and child health in more than 150 countries. Guterres warned the cut could have "devastating effects." U.N. agencies such as the U.N. Development Program (UNDP), the children's agency UNICEF, and the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), are funded by governments voluntarily. In 2016, the United States was the top contributor to the UNDP's core budget, with an $83 million donation; the leading donor to UNICEF's core budget in 2015 with $132 million; and the fourth-largest donor to the UNFPA, giving $75 million.


GUIYANG, China, May 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 'Smart Cities', driven by big data and cloud computing, can ensure fairness and inclusiveness in city development says the United Nations Development Programme's (UNDP) in its report "Smart Cities and Social Governance: Guide to Participatory Indicator Development" launched at the Sino-EU Forum for Smart Cities and Social Governance in Guiyang. The Guide documents a year-long project in the Bihai and Huizhan Neighborhoods in Guiyang that engaged communities and expert stakeholders in developing a set of social governance indicators to assist local government in assessing its progress and increasing transparency for citizens in the provision of social services. "This project shows how community voices can be included in public decision-making and at the same time community goals can be tracked and progress assessed by using high-tech platforms. In Guiyang we have piloted a participatory methodology which can be replicated in other neighborhoods and cities in China," noted Patrick Haverman, Deputy Country Director of UNDP China. The guide highlights that 'smart cities' must be oriented towards meeting human needs, collecting and sharing information with high-tech support that contributes to achieving social and environmental sustainability and creating inclusive and liveable cities. "Informatization needs fairness and inclusiveness, and be human-centered" said Zhong Mian, Vice Governor of Guizhou Province at the launch. Local governments need to address increasingly complex challenges and emerging social issues, and implement effective and inclusive city governance with limited resources. Smart city development, driven by big data and cloud computing, has the potential to bring profound changes in the governance of urban society. At its best, it can produce innovative governance and new techniques and ideas for addressing urban problems by facilitating communication between residents and government and by providing better data so officials and other actors can make better, more timely decisions. In Guiyang, indicators such as housing affordability and availability, transportation availability, accessibility of healthcare and education, safety and environmental quality of over 850 communities are being tracked and data is mapped and will be available online for public access. A smart city can contribute to achieving the goal of social and environmental sustainability and creating inclusive and liveable cities, by collecting and sharing information with high-tech support. But 'smart' approaches cannot do this alone. There must also be robust public engagement that ensures that all residents have a voice in the development of their city and in the direction and performance of their government. "This collaboration shows the how multisectoral partnerships can improve city development," said Xu Ning, Chairman of Wing Cloud Big Data.

BEIJING, May 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of China represented by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) have strengthened ties for cooperation on sustainable development with the signing of an Action Plan for the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The signing took place during the first official Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation organized by the Chinese Government on 14-15 May, in Beijing. The Action Plan is a follow up to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on BRI signed last September at the margins of the 71st UN General Assembly. Building on the progress made so far, the action plan features key areas in which the cooperation can be taken forward to drive development results. Specifically, the objectives of the Action Plan will be focused on: UNDP hopes that the signing of the 'Action Plan' represents a long-term commitment to ensure the initiative drives impactful sustainable development progress. As UNDP Administrator a.i., Tegegnework Gettu stressed "UNDP strongly believes that the BRI can maximize its positive impact by closely aligning its objectives and outcomes with the implementation of the SDGs. The BRI can act as an accelerator for the SDGs, creating global public benefits and realising clear development objectives. UNDP commends the Government of China for enacting this initiative, and acknowledges the role of China in leading by example and reaffirms its desire to support China in its efforts." At the forum, UNDP also launched the 2017 Global Governance report looking at the potential for aligning BRI strategies and policies with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  The report entitled `The Belt and Road Initiative - A new means to transformative global governance towards sustainable development', was launched alongside their national counterpart, the China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE). "The report stresses the importance of making inclusiveness the core of the Belt and Road Initiative, and aligning the BRI with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Aligning the priorities of the countries with the SDGs can serve as the practical basis for transformative governance" highlighted Zhang Xiaoqiang, CCIEE Vice Chairman. The report explores the implications of the BRI for the sustainable development of partner countries and synergies with the existing global governance system. Providing suggestions for further action, it features China`s role as a bridge builder and highlights the BRI's potential as a game changer in global economic governance towards sustainable development. One of the main findings concludes that the BRI has the potential to be a key driver of economic dynamism and rising prosperity across its regions, however this will largely depend on strategic management from within, by linking the home and host contexts. Entry points for partner countries to engage in the BRI should draw on countries' national SDGs implementation plans. This can enhance the transformative nature of the BRI and reflect each BRI country's ownership and leadership throughout the process, thereby building trust and confidence among states. This implies that the BRI can not only contribute to basic infrastructure, regional development, connectivity and industrialization, but can trigger sustainable transformation of the countries along the Belt and Road with poverty reduction, environmental sustainability and inclusive social development at its core.

BEIJING, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Chinese enterprises can play a critical role in supporting the Belt and Road regions to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, says the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the 2017 Report on the Sustainable Development of Chinese Enterprises Overseas, launched today during the Belt and Road Forum in Beijing. This is the second report to review and provide recommendations on the sustainable practices of Chinese companies operating overseas. Produced in cooperation with the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation (CAITEC) of the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) and the Research Center of State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) of the State Council, the report provides concrete analysis and recommendations on the potential impact of Chinese enterprises operating in Belt and Road regions and the realization of the 2030 Agenda in host countries. The report was launched during the high-level Belt and Road Forum (BRF) by UNDP Administrator a.i, Tegegnework Gettu. "As the growth engine in most developing and developed countries, the private sector contributes significantly to poverty eradication and creating and aggregate income and wealth by generating and providing affordable goods and services," said Gettu. "UNDP hopes the report can serve as a reference, both in principle and in practice, for Chinese enterprises at home and abroad in facilitating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Belt and Road regions and build a community of shared interests and responsibility which enhances economic, social and environmental value in a sustainable way," he added. The report highlights the linkages between the 2030 Agenda, the Belt and Road Initiative and the actions of Chinese enterprises operating overseas. These include improving infrastructure, upgrading industries, creating jobs, technology transfer and implementing ecological civilization, all areas that Chinese enterprises are already engaged in and are called on to accelerate by both the BRI and the 2030 Agenda. In 2016, China's non-financial outward direct investment (ODI) reached US$170.11 billion, an increase of 44.1% from 2015. Chinese companies invested in 7,961 overseas enterprises in 164 countries and regions. About 2.8 million jobs were created by Chinese enterprises by the end of 2015, including 1.2 million non-Chinese employees.  The report surveyed 543 Chinese enterprises doing business in the Belt and Road regions and collected opinions from 38 stakeholder representatives. It also includes 18 case studies of Chinese invested overseas projects that showcase best practices in green and sustainable economic development benefitting local communities and contributing to poverty reduction. Survey results show that Chinese enterprises investing in the Belt and Road countries have already developed relatively high levels of awareness of corporate social responsibility, and have in fact invested in the public welfare of local communities. They have made significant strides in the localization of employment, ensuring equal treatment of local and Chinese employees with regards to pay and training, and in applying  local labour, health and safety and environmental regulations. However, survey results also show that there are still improvements to be made by Chinese enterprises, in terms of systematic analysis of social and environmental risks, establishing strategic management systems for sustainable development, strengthening information disclosure and enhancing communications with stakeholders. Overseas Chinese enterprises are increasingly contributing to sustainable development in ways that are mutually beneficial to themselves and to the local community. The vision provided by the BRI as well as support from the Chinese government and other stakeholders are creating an enabling environment for Chinese enterprises to take advantage of profitable business opportunities while also contributing to the sustainable development of countries along the Belt and Road.

A general view of a water treatment plant is seen on the outskirts of Qaraqosh, Iraq, May 7, 2017. REUTERS/Danish Siddiqui MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - The families start queuing every day near the well in Mosul's Karaj al-Shamal neighborhood, filling their large plastic containers with sulfurous, nearly undrinkable water. As the battle to clear out Islamic State drags on around them, the residents of the wrecked city in northern Iraq have given up waiting for the government or international aid groups and started digging their own water out of the rubble. They don't always hit the cleanest sources. "We have no water, no electricity, no salaries, and no food. What are we supposed to do? Eat grass?" says 56-year-old Fasla Taher, as she take her containers home to the nine orphans and two widowed daughters under her care. Shaker Mahmoud, a carpenter and day laborer, says he helped dig the well, funded by a local benefactor. The same unnamed donor has paid for five others in the area and local charities have dug some more. Families try boiling the water to make it safer to drink, but the smell and the taste linger. "It is not fit to drink. I took it to a lab once and they said it was 15-25 percent sulfur," says Mahmoud. The supply is still invaluable for washing - at least 10 children had died in the area because of unsanitary conditions since the fighting started. Islamic State militants overran the city in 2014, taking it as their biggest base in Iraq and triggering counter-attacks that have destroyed large parts of the infrastructure, including the water pipes. A government offensive that started in October has cleared the militants out of the eastern side of the city. But the ultra-conservative militants are holed up in the Old City on the western side of the Tigris river and fighting seems to have stalled. The United Nations this week also reopened a water sanitation plant, part of a program that it hopes will supply all re-taken areas in three months - still a long wait for the residents. "It's now been weeks, months really, since there has been safe drinking water here and that is why the opening of this water treatment plant is just so important today," Lise Grande, UNDP Resident Representative for Iraq, told Reuters on Sunday. About another 25 other plants are in line for repairs. Beyond Mosul itself, officials say it will take $35 billion to restore all facilities in surrounding Nineveh province, though the central government in Baghdad has not yet made funds available. Back in Karaj al-Shamal, the residents are still doing the work for themselves, as they wait for their own treatment plant to be repaired. Progress has been slow. Soon after Islamic State quit their area, locals pooled money to repair their pipeline, only to watch it destroyed in an air strike the same day the work finished. So they resorted to their own wells, and queuing up outside with their large plastic containers. "This is all set up by generous people. The state is not involved," Mahmoud says.
