Next generation UNDP
Today's development challenges are complex and each context is different. That's why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.
UNDP's Strategic Plan (2018-2021) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts: eradicating poverty; structural transformations; and building resilience.
Three development settings
Eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions
Accelerate structural transformations
Build resilience to shocks and crises
To respond to these issues, and better focus its resources and expertise to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, UNDP has identified a set of approaches that we call our Signature Solutions.
Six Signature Solutions
Signature Solutions are integrated responses to development against which we align our resources and expertise, to make real impact.
Keeping people out of POVERTY
GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies
Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE
ENVIRONMENT: nature-based solutions for development
Clean, affordable ENERGY
Women's empowerment and GENDER equality
Each Solution includes a mix of policy advice, technical assistance, finance, and programmes. Each solution has the potential to unlock the path to sustainable development. But no one solution will succeed on its own. We need all of them to achieve the SDGs.
UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.
In Nepal, UNDP works together with the people and the Government Nepal, international development partners and the private sector in helping the country achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly focusing on three key areas: inclusive economic growth, democratic governance, rule of law and human rights and resilience, disaster risk reduction and climate change. UNDP works in coordination with other UN agencies in Nepal, and its activities are guided by its Country Programme Document (2018-2022) agreed with the Government of Nepal under the broader United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2018-2022.
