 Through our livelihoods and economic recovery work we support:

  • Immediate livelihoods stabilization of disaster and conflict affected communities;
  • Local economic recovery and economic transitions that integrate digital solutions, youth and women’s economic empowerment and development solutions for displacement;
  • Economically and environmentally sustainable livelihoods and inclusive economic growth.

Within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and the Global Compact for Refugees, UNDP’s development approach on migration and displacement focuses on the following 4 areas:

1) Address the root causes of displacement and mitigate negative drivers of migration;

2) Support governments to integrate migration and address displacement in national and local development plans, including localization of SDGs;

3) Support migrants, refugees, IDPs and host communities to cope, recover and sustain development gains in crisis and post crisis situations;

4) Support national and local authorities to achieve sustainable community based re/integration.

Strengthening the evidence base through (joint) assessments and analysis cuts across all the four areas above including use of digital technology wherever applicable.

UNDP has supported Development and Mine Action (DMA) programmes through the five core activities i.e. mine clearance, risk reduction education, survivor and victim assistance, stockpile destruction and advocacy.  In close cooperation with civil society, donors and our UN partners, we have focused on capacity building of Member States and governments, and linking mine action centrally to our core mandate which is development. This commitment is seen in UNDP's Development and Mine Action Support Framework.

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.
