EDITING & DESKTOP PUBLISHING
In addition to writing UN reports, I have also edited many others. Typically, this involves combining inputs from from a large team of people into a coherent, readable text.
In the past I have edited the global Human Development Report for the United Nations Development Programme, and numerous publications for UNICEF, ESCAP and the International Labour Organization. Recent publications include:
Paths to 2015: MDG Priorities in Asia and the Pacific – This report, jointly published by ESCAP, ADB and UNDP in 2011, assess which countries and subregions are likely to miss or achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. It focuseson three areas: hunger and food security; health and basic services; and basic infrastructure.
Tackling Corruption, Transforming Lives – Corruption has been seen as inevitable – unpleasant and unethical, but probably unavoidable. Now, however, it is increasingly being challenged as unacceptable. This Asia-Pacific Human Development Report, published by UNDP, shows how everyone eventually loses as a result of corruption – focusing on why it hurts the poor the most, and on what can be done.
Financing an Inclusive and Green Future – This ESCAP report estimates the finance needed to closing the gaps in MDG achievement in Asia and the Pacific. It also shows how countries across the region can more inclusive financial systems that will reach out to the millions of 'unbanked'.
