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.
