Environment and 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.

Our Goals

Mainly, the Programme supports the following outcomes: (1) Strengthened, rationalized and effectively implemented environment and natural resources policies, frameworks and plans; and (2) Streamlined Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) services and strengthened sustainable development planning and implementation capacity. more
