OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION
MORE ABOUT POVERTY REDUCTION
In line with the national MDG priorities, UNDP support in the area of poverty reduction is aimed at promoting equitable and sustainable pro-poor growth and addressing regional disparities, through awareness creation, improved data collection and strengthening of planning capabilities. 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. Building on the past successes, UNDP will work towards consolidating on MDG achievements, and moving from quantitative to more qualitative measures of performance, while mainstreaming MDGs in local service delivery systems.
