What We Do
UNDP has been operating in Guyana since 1966 supporting the people of Guyana in pursuit of national goals and objectives as articulated by the Government in its national development strategic frameworks. On the ground in more than 170 countries and territories, UNDP offers global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
We aim to help Guyana and countries around the world build and share solutions to development challenges. In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights, building national capacity and the empowerment of women.
Projects and Initiatives
Consequent to discussions initiated by the UNDP and the Tackling Child Labor Through Education (Tackle) Project, for the latter to facilitate a process under the Social protection Support Program, it was agreed that UNDP will collaborate with the Ministry of Labor, Human Services and Social Security (MLHSSS) in strengthen the Ministry’s intervention with regards to its response to Trafficking in Persons in Guyana. There is increasing concern that young women particularly from hinterland and vulnerable coastal communities can be exploited. more
