Overview

What We Do

UNDP is working for a world where people are empowered and nations made more resilient to create and sustain growth that will improve people’s lives. more

Our Goals

The country programme is informed by the recommendations of the mid-term review of the 2007–2011 country programmes, national MDG progress reports and outcome evaluations of the previous programme. The 2008– 2013 UNDP Corporate Strategic Plan and the UNDP Regional Bureau for Africa (RBA) Strategy and Management Review all guided the development of the new country programme, focusing on capacity development for pro-poor growth and accountability. The programme is also guided by a rights-based approach, focusing on providing policy advice and strengthening national capacities.
