The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a global organization with 18,000 staff working in approximately 170 offices globally. UNDP works in development and crisis settings with the aim to achieve the eradication of poverty, reduction of inequalities and exclusion, and sustained development results. UNDP has worked in India since 1951 in almost all areas of human development, from systems and institutional strengthening to inclusive growth and sustainable livelihoods, as well as sustainable energy, environment, and resilience.The Chemicals and Environment Management Unit of UNDP is currently working on Hydrochlorofluorocarbons Phaseout Management Plan, Institutional Strengthening Project, Inventorisation of Mercury in India, and developing proposals for Country Level Control of Mercury in air emissions, Environmentally Sound Management of Electrical and Electronic Waste (E-waste), financial models for environmental projects, sustainability projects etc.
Under the Hydrochlorofluorocarbons Phase-out Management Plan (HPMP) Stage–I, India prioritized phase-out of HCFC-141b in foaming sectors. The Executive Committee (Ex-Com) of the Multilateral Fund (MLF) in its 77th meeting, approved the HPMP Stage-II for India with a total funding of USD 44,911,459 plus implementing agencies support costs. The agreement between the Ex-Com of the MLF and the Government of India to reduce consumption of HCFCs under HPMP Stage II was also approved in the same decision. As per the decision, UNDP assumed the role of lead implementing agency of HPMP Stage-II, with UN Environment and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Proklima, Government of Germany as cooperating agencies. Under HPMP – II, UNDP supports the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC), Government of India, which in turn facilitates participating enterprises to effectively phase-out HCFCs.
Addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment is a key aspect of UNDP's approach to achieving its core vision. Gender equality and women’s empowerment are seen as goals in their own right and are also central to the achievement of UNDP's development mandate. UNDP is guided in its work by its Gender Equality Strategy 2018-2021 which details how UNDP works towards gender equality in each of the goals and key results set out in the UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021. In this regard, the HPMP II project also aims to compile baseline information on gender-specific and related data on participating enterprises.
