OUR FOCUS

Sustainable development

Economic Recovery

UNDP works globally with communities and societies affected by natural disasters, crisis and conflicts, during both, sudden and protracted situations for early and long-term economic and livelihoods recovery. We believe in systematically addressing underlying vulnerabilities and inequalities to progress towards sustainable and equitable development. Our economic recovery efforts are the first critical steps towards reducing vulnerability and building resilience.

The three critical steps that define our programme and policy support:

  • Support livelihoods stabilization of disaster and conflict affected individuals, communities and societies, ensuring that relief, recovery and development are addressed simultaneously.
  • Support local economic recovery for medium and long-term jobs and employment, for income generation opportunities and finding development solutions for displacement.
  • Support economically and environmentally sustainable livelihoods, and inclusive economic growth by strengthening resilience of countries and their ability to cope with unavoidable shocks.
