OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

UNDP collaborates with government authorities, the public and private sector, and civil society in promoting human development, reducing poverty, addressing economic and social inequalities, and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Economic growth will not reduce poverty, improve equality and produce jobs unless it is inclusive. UNDP works to make real improvements in people’s lives, opening up their choices and opportunities.
