UNDP has designed a range of programmes for development solutions to help prevent violent extremism. These programmes entail an outline budget of $108m for 2017-2020, or $27m a year on average. This reflects interest from several partners in working with UNDP to support efforts on Prevention of Violent Extremism.
UNDP welcomes the recommendations of the Office of Audit and Investigation’s (OAI) Social and Environmental Compliance Unit (SECU) and is taking urgent and concrete measures to ensure the report’s recommendations are implemented.
UNDP has zero tolerance for wrongdoing in all of its programmes and projects. UNDP is greatly concerned by the allegation from the Israeli authorities with respect to the UNDP contractor who has been providing professional services within the rubble removal project.
