Striving to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Japanese government, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Africa Bureau, has significantly contributed to advancing humanitarian, developmental, and peace efforts in Africa through various projects. These projects, supported by Japanese government funding from 2023 to 2024, focus on areas such as peacebuilding, economic recovery, counter-terrorism, United Nations Peacekeeping Operations training, refugee resettlement, disaster recovery, and electoral system transparency.

Policy-level cooperation is maintained through the African Development Conference (TICAD), jointly organized by UNDP and the Japanese government. UNDP, as a co-organizer of TICAD since 1993, actively engages in high-level and ministerial meetings, promoting action plan monitoring and stakeholder involvement, thereby strengthening partnerships between Japan and Africa.

The implementation of Japan-supported projects involves key partnerships with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Japanese civil society organizations (CSOs), and private enterprises.
