Democratic Governance

UNDP contributes towards improved democratic governance in Namibia by working in specific areas with the governance institutions that provide the best potential to improve oversight, human rights, accountability and participation. We also support the Law Reform and Development Committee and Electoral Commission of Namibia to Electoral Law Reform and influenced the draft legislation to regulate political party and campaign finance laws, processes and institutions to create an enabling environment for women’s participation as voters and candidates.

Our Goals

We aim to ensure that the capacity of public institutions and Civil Society Organizations (CSO) is strengthened to implement the national Anti-Corruption Strategy. more
