The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) appointed the established actor Fawad Khan as its National Goodwill Ambassador in a ceremony held in Islamabad, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

UNDP's goodwill ambassadors are persuasive people who act as spokespersons to maintain the UN Charter and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

At the launching ceremony, the UNDP Pakistan's president, Knut Ostby, other officials and UNDP’s young beneficiaries working as green social entrepreneurs were present. A formal document was signed between Fawad Khan and Mr. Ostby followed by the screening of an environment activity support film named 'Don't Choose Extinction'.

"We are incredibly proud to have Fawad Khan as our Goodwill Ambassador. As you all know, climate change is one of the most serious and immediate risks we're facing. I appreciate that as a spokesperson for Agenda 2030, Fawad Khan's first advocacy support highlights climate action," commented the UNDP Pakistan's Resident Representative, Mr. Knut Ostby.

"I am honored to be signed as the National Goodwill Ambassador for UNDP Pakistan," said Mr. Fawad Khan while addressing to the audience of green ambassadors and social entrepreneurs "I truly believe that the Sustainable Development Goals provide us with a roadmap for peace and prosperity, for people and the planet. This is an exciting opportunity for me to raise awareness and advocate the Agenda 2030."
