Looking to the future

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.

This is a critical time for the world. At UNDP, we see this period as a huge opportunity to advance the global sustainable development agenda. In September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, which will guide global development priorities through 2030.

UNDP in Guyana

“Leveraging our strengths and innovation to develop national capacities and to foster inclusion and cohesion in a sustainable green Guyana.”

UNDP has been operating in Guyana since 1966, supporting both the Government of Guyana and its people in the pursuit of national goals and objectives, as outlined in its national development plans and strategies.

UNDP Programme in Guyana is guided the Country Programme Document (CPD 2017-2021), and the United Nations Multi-country Sustainable Development Framework in the Caribbean (UN MSDF 2017-2021). UNDP's Strategic Plan (2018-2021) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts: eradicating poverty; structural transformations; and building resilience.

UNDP has contributed to Guyana’s development priorities in particular by supporting the objectives of the Green State Development Strategy (GSDS), namely to promote economic development, while at the same time combating climate change.

Today's development challenges are complex and each context is different. That's why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.
