UNDP

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is an executive Board within the United Nations General Assembly, and works with governments in over 170 countries to enhance development and overcome challenges. In its capacity as a global development network, UNDP aims to “help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results” where they develop local capacity through providing advice, grants, funds and trainings, all while promoting cooperation in many dimensions – technical, financial and social. The UNDP fund is based on voluntary contributions from the UN member states, and these funds go towards the implementation of projects that works towards:

  1. Eradicating poverty
  2. Promoting democratic governance
  3. Reducing inequalities and exclusion
  4. Crisis prevention/recovery, and
  5. Social development

With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, the UNDP focuses on supporting countries to achieve these goals, through strengthening the necessary frameworks, and as such has established the UNDP “Signature Solutions” which are:

  • Keeping people out of POVERTY
  • GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies
  • Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE
  • ENVIRONMENT: nature-based solutions for development
  • Clean, affordable ENERGY
  • Women’s empowerment and GENDER equality
