Subregional Activities for Development

Given the vast coverage and diversity of the Asian-Pacific region, ESCAP’s programme on subregional activities for development strengthens the Commission’s presence and interventions at the subregional level in order to better target and deliver programmes that address specific key priorities, including poverty reduction and sustainable development, of member States in the respective subregions.

The programme on subregional activities provides more focused and in-depth technical assistance to address key development challenges. Upon the request of member States, ESCAP provides through advisory services, organizes training workshops and implements field projects. The subregional work also serves as a means of putting into action the analytical and normative work of ESCAP at the subregional and national levels.
