UNDP Multi County Office in Jamaica is privileged to work in partnership with the government and people of Jamaica, Bermuda, The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands, to advance their national development priorities consistent with UNDP’s mission and the Sustainable Development Goals. Our partner governments provide expert leadership, knowledge and experience required for the formulation and implementation phases of programmes geared to improve the sustainable development outcomes of their respective nations.
Technical and financial resources brought to the table by our donor partners make UNDP’s development work possible and have impacted thousands of lives across the Multi Country Office’s programme jurisdiction. Several multilateral and bilateral donors have played a critical role in advancing UNDP MCO’s mission of ending poverty, inequalities and climate change once and for all. This has strengthened policy environments for climate resilience, furthered national agendas for climate change adaptation and mitigation and positioned renewables as a greater part of the energy mix. Donors have also made it possible to place more potable water in underserved communities; mitigate the impacts of climate change; advance the green economy by leveraging native biodiversity; expand rule of law and citizen safety and safety and security; and advance national contributions to global ozone protection. Donor funding is also helping to enhance sustainable livelihoods in key sectors. Meet our donors:
Private Sector and Civil Society
UNDP’s partnerships with private sector and civil society helped fast tracked economic recovery in hurricane-hit nations through relief grants to the Medium, Small and Micro Enterprise sector. As co leaders of environmental clean-ups in these nations, they help clear the way for emergency response teams, restore biodiversity loss and tourism hotspots for economic growth. Private sector and civil society remain our leading partners in communities on the frontlines of climate change. With their help, many communities are building resilience to climate change impacts which is preserving food security, jobs, education, access to water.
UNDP and the UN
Under the umbrella of the UN Country Team (UNCT) in Jamaica, UNDP partners with agencies, funds and programmes to deliver joint programmes through the UN Multi Country Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UN MSDCF) in the Caribbean. Through this framework UNCTs combine resources and leverage technical expertise to provide multi-agency support to development challenges. The multi country regional approach replaces stand-alone country programmes commonly known as the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF).
