Next generation UNDP
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.
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.
Since the onset of the crisis in Syria in 2011, UNDP has responded to the huge needs that emerged by implementing a unique resilience programme to support the Syrian people. UNDP goes beyond humanitarian assistance in the sense that it strengthens the resilience of the Syrian people by enhancing positive coping mechanisms, that enable them to rely on themselves and rebuild their livelihoods, rather than remain dependent on humanitarian assistance. Within the UN Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), UNDP’s interventions are focused on the rehabilitation of basic and social infrastructures, providing livelihoods support, enhancing economic recovery and social inclusion, and strengthening social cohesion.
