2020 Annual Report — Rule of Law and Human Rights

January 1, 2021

The 2020 annual report highlights key achievements of UNDP’s Global Programme in over 40 fragile, crisis- or conflict-affected contexts in five regions: Africa, Arab States, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

The profiles of five contexts have been selected to reflect the collective accomplishments within the Global Focal Point for the Rule of Law (GFP): Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, and South Sudan. GFP is an arrangement co-led by UNDP and the UN Department of Peace Operations (DPO).

The Global Programme frames its activities within interlinked areas, such as political engagement, institution building, human rights, access to justice, gender equality, and community security. Eight thematic sections in this report detail UNDP’s signature initiatives, success stories and innovative approaches developed in synergies with the Global Programme’s partners.

Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this report also covers the Global Programme’s response to an unprecedented health crisis.
