- Development of policies for economic diversification, inclusivity, private sector engagement and investments
UNDP will support the development of an economic diversification strategy (aligned with a blue economy framework) and of policies and strategies to increase labour force participation of marginalized groups, such as women and people with disability. UNDP will work with UN and partners to support the Government to establish a robust labour market information and monitoring system with high-quality data for evidence-based policies. Assistance will be provided to national efforts to formulate an economic census survey and undertake the Maldives’s first labour force survey.
- Strengthened blue, green and digital value chains
UNDP will support skills-building for women, young people, people with disabilities and those recovering from addiction to acquire technologies and digital and extension services so they can meaningfully contribute to blue, green and digital value chains. UNDP will work with UN and partners to leverage data-driven solutions and innovation platforms focusing on inclusive livelihood opportunities for women and men.
