UNDP’s new programme cycle which came into operation in 2013, closely links the poverty reduction, democratic governance, and crisis prevention and recovery pillars, under the new ‘Governance for Empowerment and Social Inclusion’ cluster. With the former conflict-affected areas gradually moving from relief to resettlement and recovery, UNDP will adopt a local economic development framework to its work in conflict-affected areas, which will include a formal integration between its current downstream recovery and local governance programmes. UNDP will continue using market-based approaches with more emphasis on value-addition and enterprise development, to support its beneficiary communities to migrate from subsistence to market livelihoods, focusing on the well-being of people still at risk. This work will involve building connections between communities and private sector organizations, so they can access new markets and financial services.
