Poverty Reduction and Achievement of MDGs

UNDP contributes to poverty reduction and economic development with a particular focus on rural poor, women and marginalized people. UNDP works towards improving rural livelihoods in Tajikistan both by building capacities of national and sub-national governments to plan, budget and monitor development and enhance capacities of private sector and civil society to more actively participate in the decision-making process, exercise influence and hold governments accountable.
