WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, Aug. 7) - The United Nations
Development Program (UNDP) in Samoa plans to build a partnership with the
National University of Samoa.

The program’s resident representative in Apia, Joyce Yu, said
the plan is part of a new strategy by the UNDP that puts emphasis on information
technology and on youth.

Yu said the UNDP would endow a chair or a course at the
university on human development.

"This is to strengthen the field of study in the National
University on development issues so that the policy dialogue and development
policies for the future will be able to have this informed academic think-tank
resource," she said.

Yu said the UNDP also plans to design better online services and
improve government websites for people in the region with various projects like
those in health and education being developed for the Cook Islands and Niue
