The security situation in Pakistan has drastically improved according to the country director of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) there.
A year ago this December around 140 people, the vast majority children, were killed in an attack on a school in Peshawar.
The outlawed Taliban group claimed responsibility.
Since then its fighters have been pushed out of areas it controlled and attacks have dropped by a half.
Marc-Andre Franche is the head of UNDP’s office in Pakistan.
Daniel Dickinson began by asking him about the main challenges faced by the country.
