Democratic governance and peacebuilding
UNDP ensures inclusive and effective democratic governance by advocating, advising, fostering impartial spaces for dialogue, achieving consensus and building institutions. UNDP helps governance institutions in countries bring constitutional reforms, organize credible elections, strengthen parliaments, and address policy and institutional options for peace, risk-reduction and development through reconciliation, empowerment and inclusion.
UNDP helps create an enabling environment for all social partners, including civil societies, to grow in strength and contribute towards national development.
