UNDP supports countries to articulate their development priorities and needs, and assess and develop their own capacities.
We work with national partners, examining issues such as leadership, how their organizations are arranged internally, how they use knowledge, and what accountability mechanisms work. This includes working with partners at the level of institutions and systems, as opposed to only training individuals – an ineffective trend of the past.
UNDP supports national partners with: Aid and development effectiveness, national implementation capacities and use of country systems, national and sector capacity development strategies and local service delivery.
The ideal end result is that countries can take care of their own development needs and states are able to deliver quality public services, develop and regulate markets, provide justice and security and promote and protect the rights of all people.
