Overview

What We Do

UNDP operates projects under the umbrella of five priority areas namely: Poverty Reduction, Democratic Governance, Peace Building and Conflict Resolution, Energy and Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction. The cross cutting initiatives such as Millennium Development Goals are implemented through the Strategic Policy Advisory Unit, UNV Volunteers Country Office, Communications Unit and the Country Director’s Support Team.

Our Goals

UNDP Kenya has a strong relationship with the Government of Kenya and is fully committed to further strengthening this partnership. The overall focus of UNDP in Kenya is to support the Government of Kenya to promote enhanced opportunities, empowerment, security (HIV/AIDS, natural and man-made disasters), sustainability and strategic outreach, all of which are detailed in the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) for the years 2009 to 2013 as outlined in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for Kenya.
