Inclusive Effective Governance

UNDP strongly believes that good governance based on constitutional democracy fosters national development by creating an environment conducive for investment. The Inclusive Effective Governance programmes focuses on promoting policy actions and institutional mechanisms that can combat corruption, improves service delivery and advances women’s participation in leadership and decision making. In addition, it will contribute to strengthening the justice and security systems hence boosting social cohesion, peace and stability. Under the Inclusive and Effective Governance portfolio, our work will focus on strengthening national capacities for: i. The Rule of Law and Constitutional Democracy (RLCD); ii. Institutional Effectiveness (IE); iii. Peace, Security & System Resilience (PSSR).
