Democratic Governance

  • Protect the Environmental Rights and Justice of the Public

    The project helped establish a public interest litigation system in China’s civil procedure. China’s new Civil Procedure Law endorsed the ACEF-UNDP legislative proposal to qualify Civil Society Organisations as plaintiffs in public interest litigation to the National People’s Congress.

  • Public Participation in Governance Performance Assessment for MDG Acceleration in China

    The overall aims of this project are to help establish a transparent, responsive and accountable public administration system by promoting public participation in government performance assessment (PPGPA). An analysis was undertaken of the eight typical models of local PPGPA, which summarised the patterns of current PPGPA in the Chinese national context. From this best practices and lessons learnt have been identified, the main obstacles to PPGPA’s development assessed and suggestions provided for improving PPGPA in the future.

  • Advance Leadership Programme for a xiaokang Society (Phase III)

    This project was originally launched in 2004 to help China build a Xiaokang society by introducing a tested conceptual and operational framework to guide policy making and enhance the capacity of the senior officials to effectively provide leadership.

  • Innovation in China’s Public Sector for Good Governance

    This project continues UNDP’s longstanding support to the leading government body for public sector reform, the State Commission Office for Public Sector Reform (SCOPSR), in developing comprehensive reforms for China.

  • Strengthening Access to Justice and Legal Empowerment for People living with HIV and Key Populations – (Daytop Project)

    Access to legal-aid services for people living with HIV (PLHIV) and particularly those among already-vulnerable populations is central to a more effective response to the AIDS epidemic in China.UNDP has been supporting the scale-up of legal-aid service providers in Yunnan, the province with the highest rate of HIV infections in China with over 80,000 reported cases and a rampant hidden epidemic.

  • Human Resources Development and Government Capacity Building to Achieve Xiaokang/MDG Targets

    This HRD program (phase 5) seeks to strengthen the capacity for mid-level officials to better manage the MDGs / all-round Xiaokang progress, in parallel with the “Advanced Leadership” program which targets high level officials.

Our Work - Democratic Governance

UNDP works with the Government by supporting the current 12th Five-Year Plan which includes goals to make the governance process in China more transparent, equitable and inclusive, by supporting pilot projects for new governance techniques and providing high-level context-specific policy recommendations. At present our shared focus is on improving the rule of law, promoting more widespread participation through government performance assessment and extending social governance by increasing the involvement of civil society in the governance process.
