UNDP Global Programme 2014-2017
The Global Programme supports countries to achieve the eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion. The Global Programme is the architecture that allows UNDP to provide coherent global policy advice and programme support services, based on country and regional programme experiences and drawing on the pool of evidence, knowledge and expertise gained by UNDP across all development settings. It is anchored in the network of relationships between UNDP and programme and donor countries and institutions, and contributes to the vision of the strategic plan, 2014-2017, by working on what can be done only, or best, at the global level. The Programme will support progress on multilateral agreements and frameworks; provide thought leadership in new or emerging areas in development debates; and overcome barriers to development solutions that could be better tackled at the global level to benefit large groups of programme countries. Programme priorities will be selected from within the following broad areas of strategic plan work: the post-2015 development agenda and sustainable development goals; inclusive and sustainable development pathways; climate and disaster risks; inclusive and effective institutions; and gender equality and women’s empowerment.
