Forbes magazine has named United Nations development chief Helen Clark one of the world’s 100 most powerful women for a ninth year.

“Beginning her second four-year-term as administrator of the lead agency in the UN development system, Clark sits atop a $5.8 billion annual budget and a staff of 8,000 in 177 countries,” Forbes said.

“Her solution to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction includes big investments in gender equality and reproductive health,” the magazine added.

Before becoming the Administrator of the United Nations Development Program in 2009, Clark was the first female prime minister of New Zealand. Clark was ranked 21st on the list of the 100 most powerful women, which includes German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the top spot, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff at no. 2, followed by Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ wife Melinda Gates, U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
