Regional project factsheets
UNDP manages a regional programme that includes five regional projects, which serve to address cross-border risks and opportunities, and seek to build the capacities of regional institutions and economic communities to manage them.
Fostering resilience: UNDP supports the continent’s resilience agenda by: enhancing conflict prevention and peacebuilding capacity; strengthening preparedness for disaster risk management; and bolstering climate change adaptation and mitigation.
Transforming governance: Our work contributes to increasing space for political participation; redefining the social contract; improving urban governance; and tackling illicit financial flows.
Fostering gender equality: We work to promote participation, leadership and entrepreneurship among women.
Promoting structural transformation: UNDP supports interventions which integrate and address economic, social, and environmental aspects for inclusive growth.
Promoting South-South Cooperation and the SDGs: We contribute to the continent’s global engagement agenda through supporting dialogue, partnerships and knowledge exchange, cutting across regions of the South.
