What We Do
UNDP works with national partners to help people achieve inclusive and sustainable human development. We address regional disparities by strengthening local economies and governance systems able to deliver social services in an equitable manner, while helping disadvantaged communities to access justice systems and legal aid. We also work to protect the environment and develop national capacities to respond to disasters and mitigate the risk they pose.
UNDP works with national and local partners and institutions to increase their capacity to plan, implement, monitor and sustain inclusive, socio-economic development. We aim to create sustainable livelihoods and protect human rights, with special attention to the needs of the marginalized— including conflict-affected communities, women-headed households, and youth. At the same time we support the national agenda for sustainable development, promoting policies designed to strengthen natural resource management, climate change adaptation and mitigation, and disaster risk reduction. more
