UNDP works with a range of civil society organizations (CSOs) at regional and local levels in Latin America and the Caribbean to help lift people out of poverty, build resilient communities and promote human rights and thereby advance the millennium Development Goals.
In its development policy and practice concerning youth, UNDP sees decent work and livelihood creation as chief determinants of socio-economic empowerment of youth and a contributor to the achievement of sustainable human development.
Old ways of doing business are no longer sufficient to address the challenges and exploit the opportunities of today. The importance of having access to quickly available knowledge and expertise, no matter where it is located, is critical.
UNDP supports strengthened youth engagement in disaster preparedness, crisis response and resilience building in crisis and/or conflict contexts. Young men and women are playing an active role in rebuilding the social fabric of societies.
