Through the Global Programme on Democratic Governance Assessments, UNDP seeks to assist developing countries in producing disaggregated and non-ranking governance indicators to enable national stakeholders to better monitor performance toward democratic governance reforms.
The aim of the Programme is to develop the capacities of governments, national statistical offices and civil society in the collection, maintenance and analysis of governance-related data and to assist development of an inclusive, consultative framework for systematic assessment and monitoring of democratic governance goals and targets expressed in national development plans.
UNDP currently provides financial and technical support to governance assessments projects across the world, including in Angola, Barbados, Bhutan, Chile, Djibouti, Egypt, FYR Macedonia, Indonesia, Malawi, Mexico, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Senegal and Tajikistan.

More on the OGC
UNDP established the Oslo Governance Centre in Oslo, Norway in 2002 as part of its global policy network for democratic governance, at a time when it had become clearer than ever that the fundamental issues of democratic governance are critical for meeting the Millennium Development Goals adopted at the Millennium Summit in 2000. The Oslo Governance Centre is an integral part of the Democratic Governance Group (DGG) in UNDP's Bureau for Development Policy (BDP).
