Democratic Governance

  • Evaluation of the Reduction of the Human Poverty Programme in Namibia

    The overall objective of the final evaluation of the Reduction of Human Poverty Programme (2006-2013) was to evaluate the degree of implementation, efficiency and quality delivered on outputs and outcomes, against what was originally planned or subsequently revised. It seeks to measure programme results and any potential impacts (short, medium and long term) generated by the programme.

  • Curriculum Development and In-service Teacher Education Project

    The development of appropriate curriculum and upgrading professional qualifications and classroom performance of teachers over the past years has played an important role in improving post-independence education system. Quality education is a crucial element of poverty alleviation and human development which are at the core of UNDP development strategies.

Our Work in Democratic Governance

In 2012, UNDP was invited to join the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Human Rights.  The committee is chaired by the Ministry of Justice and includes institutions such as the Office of the Ombudsman, various Ministries, Civil Society Organizations and institutions of higher learning (UNAM).  A Human Rights baseline study (2012) and the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) recommendations will be implemented through a Human Rights Action Plan that will be drafted in 2014. We  will continue to serve on the committee, support the Office of the Ombudsman on the development of the Human Rights Action Plan and subsequently the UPR recommendations, the majority of which is focused on promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment.
