Democratic governance and peacebuilding

More countries in Africa have undergone democratic transitions than has ever been the case. UNDP strengthens the capacity of institutions to manage development processes, while expanding people's opportunity to participate in decision-making, including women, youth and marginalized groups.   

 

Our Goals

UNDP’s support for national and local institutions helps to build efficient and accountable public administrations, fight corruption, promote fair and accessible justice systems and ensure public services reach those who need them the most. We strengthen a wide range of democratic institutions, including governments, parliaments, judicial institutions and local authorities.
