Our Work - Democratic Governance
Building Capacity


The UNDP-Thailand partnership on democratic governance is targeted at both ends of the democracy spectrum – the decentralized grassroots level and the central national level. At the local level, UNDP supports on-going efforts to promote participatory development planning and decision-making, building capacity for effective implementation of poverty reduction and development programmes, empowering women, and generally works to create a stronger voice for people in local governance.
