Democratic Governance and Peacebuilding
UNDP ensures inclusive and effective democratic governance by advocating, advising, fostering impartial spaces for building institutions, dialogue and achieving consensus.
UNDP helps governance institutions in countries bring constitutional reforms, organize credible elections, strengthen parliaments, and address policy and institutional options for peace, risk-reduction and development through reconciliation, empowerment and inclusion.
UNDP helps create an enabling environment for all social partners, including civil societies, to grow in strength and contribute towards national development.
Our ultimate goal is to bring effective and equitable delivery of public service to citizens -- especially the poor, indigenous and local communities -- and reinforce the rule of law and citizen security through the design of appropriate policy, legal and regulatory frameworks and strengthening of national and local governance institutions.
