OUR WORK - ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY

UNDP works on enhancing the environment's carrying capacity to support the country's sustained economic growth, alleviating poverty in the process. This is through the: (1) evolution and refinement of the legislative, institutional, and regulatory framework; (2) use of market-based mechanisms and adoption of environmentally sustainable technologies to encourage private sector participation in environmental protection as well as greater community alliance in the formulation and implementation of local level initiatives; and (3) establishment of a more effective system of environmental governance and delivery of environmental services, including monitoring and enforcement.
