Projects and Initiatives
Access to justice for the poor in Indonesia: A joint initiative with the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) on a project aimed at strengthening access to justice for poor and marginalized people through support to legal services, legal and human rights awareness and legal capacity development.
Reforming property and business systems in Albania: UNDP, the Institute for Liberty and Democracy and the Government of Albania are studying obstacles and costs of doing business in Albania. Major obstacles are within the nation's existing legal framework, which contains regulatory bottlenecks, unpredictable norms, and inadequate laws that compel the poor to operate in the informal economy.
The Oslo Governance Centre (OGC) works to position UNDP as a champion of democratic governance, both as an end in itself, and as a means to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. This is done through knowledge networking and multi-disciplinary team work, as well as through close partnerships with leading policy and research institutions in different parts of the world.
