UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.
This is a critical time for the world. At UNDP, we see this period as a huge opportunity to advance the global sustainable development agenda. Last year, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to continue the work of the Millennium Development Goals. UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, which will guide global development priorities for the next 15 years.
UNDP is part of a single, coherent plan for all 17 UN agencies, funds and programmes, entitled the Programme of Cooperation for Sustainable Development.The Programme is well aligned with the National Strategy for Development and Integration and it reflects national development priorities and international commitments, along with United Nations norms and standards. At the request of the Government, the new programme also continues to build upon the Delivering as One approach of the United Nations.
Our work is clustered around mutually interlinked four programme areas: Social Inclusion, Democratic Governance and Rule of Law, Environmental and Climate Change, Economic Growth and Employment.
