Our focus

Next generation UNDP

Today's development challenges are complex and each context is different. That's why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.

UNDP's Strategic Plan (2022-2025) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts: eradicating poverty; structural transformations; and building resilience.

Three development settings

 
  • Eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions
  • Accelerate structural transformations
  • Build resilience to shocks and crises

To respond to these issues, and better focus its resources and expertise to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, UNDP has identified a set of approaches that we call our Signature Solutions.

 

Six Signature Solutions

Signature Solutions are integrated responses to development against which we align our resources and expertise, to make real impact.

Keeping people out of POVERTY

GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies

Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE

ENVIRONMENT: nature-based solutions for development

Clean, affordable ENERGY

Women's empowerment and GENDER equality

Each Solution includes a mix of policy advice, technical assistance, finance, and programmes. Each solution has the potential to unlock the path to sustainable development. But no one solution will succeed on its own. We need all of them to achieve the SDGs.
