UNDP

Our focus

Our focus areas

As we implement our new plan for a new era in three focus areas, see how we've been building on our strengths and presence on the ground in 10 Pacific island countries and territories with regional support to five island countries under the PNG Office and the Samoa Multicountry Office.

We also have work that support and cut accross the three focus areas.

Gender equality and women empowerment is a core commitment of UNDP.  We recognize that women’s empowerment and gender equality are cross-cutting issues that lie at the heart of human development.

The Accelerator Lab is UNDP’s new way of working in development. Together with our core partners, the State of Qatar and the Federal Republic of Germany, 60 labs serving 78 countries will work together with national and global partners to find radically new approaches that fit the complexity of current development challenges.

Next generation UNDP

Today's development challenges are complex and each context is different. That's why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.

UNDP's Strategic Plan (2018-2021) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts: eradicating poverty; structural transformations; and building resilience.

Three development settings


Eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions

Accelerate structural transformations

Build resilience to shocks and crises

To respond to these issues, and better focus its resources and expertise to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, UNDP has identified a set of approaches that we call our Signature Solutions.

 

Six signature solutions

Signature Solutions are integrated responses to development against which we align our resources and expertise, to make real impact.

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

Each Solution includes a mix of policy advice, technical assistance, finance, and programmes. Each solution has the potential to unlock the path to sustainable development. But no one solution will succeed on its own. We need all of them to achieve the SDGs.
