UNDP strategy for the Sahel

13 May 2014

To tackle the challenges of human development and avoid the threats that the situation in the Sahel places on regional and global security, the United Nations adopted an integrated strategy in June 2013.


UNDP has developed its approach for the Sahel based on the United Nations Integrated Strategy and its own comparative advantages: its neutrality, its commitment to sustainable human development, its role in coordinating interventions by different development partners, and its capacity and reach as a knowledge network.

To make this approach operational, UNDP has developed a support framework that aims to promote inclusive, balanced and effective governance and to promote the establishment of effective public policies that contribute to inclusive human development.
