As one of our largest government contributors, the Netherlands is a vital partner in UNDP’s mission to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality and achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UNDP’s work and the priorities of the Dutch Government converge in many areas, especially in our shared ambition to help countries reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through strengthening democratic governance and the rule of law, building resilience and preparedness in response to crisis and natural disasters, and supporting climate change mitigation and adaptation.
“As a UN system organisation with a global presence and as a reliable and neutral partner, UNDP is highly relevant to the Netherlands’ development cooperation. In sensitive areas like democratization and rule of law, as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights, gender equality and climate, the organisation plays a major role.” The Netherlands’ assessment of its multilateral development partners, 2017.
