OUR FOCUS

Development
impact

People centred. Innovative. Knowledge driven.

UNDP assists partners to achieve sustainable, people-centered development through an integrated approach that links policy with planning and programming, for promoting results based management, instating quality social and environmental safeguards, monitoring and evaluating impact and equally learning from failures and successes.

UNDP introduces systems, from the project level up, to entrench evaluation, learning and knowledge management strongly in the organization by being more open, innovative, knowledge and evidence driven. This eventually supports effective development cooperation, South-South and Triangular Cooperation and higher quality programming and action.
