Fishermen Labs launches United Nations Development Programme’s New Website

UNDP selects Fishermen Labs to lead web revitalization project – PR by 1800pr

LOS ANGELES, May 30, 2017  — Fishermen Labs, a leading product development agency with a heavy focus on mobile app and dynamic web projects, today announced the completion of the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) website design project.  The project follows CEO Eden Chen’s commitment to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which world leaders signed up to in order to end poverty and inequality for good. The project provided an updated design language, solutions to the navigational system and templates for UNDP’s global website and network of nearly 170 associated country sites.

Visit the new UNDP.ORG website.

Eden Chen, co-founder of Fishermen Labs, said: “The United Nations Development Programme has been an inspiration to me for many years. The opportunity to work on a site with massive global impact and that spans hundreds of countries was both complex and fulfilling. We believe in the power of storytelling and we strive to use the digital space to solve global challenges, and the new UNDP design achieves both these goals.”

Mila Rosenthal, UNDP Director of Communications, said: “Fishermen Labs was a great collaborator for us to help modernize our digital footprint.  Their talented team worked with us to create a fresh and engaging new look for our website. We’re excited to be rolling it out this year.”

About the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, to eradicate poverty, and reduce inequalities and exclusion. The organisation works with governments and people across the world to create a future where every community, rich or poor, is prepared to withstand disasters and minimize loss, and where climate change, poverty and inequality are a thing of the past. In all UNDP’s activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.

UNDP supports countries’ efforts to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, which will guide global development priorities for the next 15 years. The 17 Goals are a plan to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that no one is left behind. They include things like making sure people have access to clean water, energy, education, health care and good jobs; achieving gender equality; reducing vulnerability to climate-change and disasters; reducing inequality; protecting our oceans and forests; preventing conflict and promoting peace and justice around the world. Achieving all the Goals will mean an end to all forms of poverty.
