Leaving no one behind, UNDP works for humanitarian, peace and development, working together both with the governments to strengthen capacity to address the needs of the vulnerable and also with local communities to build their long term resilience to shocks.
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. This is a critical time for the world and Myanmar. At UNDP, we see this period as a huge opportunity to advance the country’s sustainable development agenda and the sustainable development goals.
In Myanmar, UNDP works in 2 main areas:
- Peace and governance: sustaining peace through national reconciliation and building an effective democratic state;
- Planet and prosperity: promoting inclusive, resilient and sustainable development and environmental management.
In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.
