UNDP’s Strategic Plan (2014-2017) emphasizes the critical links between environmental sustainability and efforts to eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities, and strengthen resilience. Drawing on over forty years of experience, UNDP assists countries to implement their obligations under Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) and to integrate environmental concerns into national and sectoral plans and strategies; secure resources; implement programs that advance inclusive, sustainable and resilient development, and strengthen livelihoods.
UNDP’s support for environmental management and nationally-owned sustainable development pathways includes the following areas: biodiversity and ecosystem services, including forest and wildlife management and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+); sustainable land management and desertification; water and ocean governance; climate change adaptation and mitigation; sustainable energy use and energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies and access; chemicals and waste management; green economy; and extractive industries. UNDP works across these areas to address issues of environmental governance, policy, regulation, capacity development, financing, human rights, gender, technology, South-South learning, and public, private, and civil society partnerships at all levels.
As a leading purveyor of environmental technical assistance and grant financing, UNDP works in 47 countries in the sub-Saharan Africa region. UNDP is an accredited multilateral implementing agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), Multilateral Fund for Implementation of the Montreal Protocol (MLF), Adaptation Fund (AF) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF). As such, UNDP offers integrated technical services for needs assessment, program formulation, resource mobilization, implementation oversight, knowledge and results management, and evaluation.
