Overview

What We Do

UNDP has designed its programme to address the interlinked issues of poverty, inequality and exclusion towards achieving sustainable and inclusive economic growth. It operates projects under the umbrella of four strategic programme priority areas namely: a)Devolution and accountability; b)Productive sectors and trade; c) Environmental sustainability, renewable energy and sustainable land management; and d.)Community security, cohesion and resilience. The cross cutting initiatives such as Millennium Development Goals are implemented through the Strategic Policy Advisory Unit, UNV Volunteers Country Office, Communications Unit and the Country Director’s Support Team. The unique principles of engagement of UNDP will support the deepening of democracy in Kenya and promote resilience-building of vulnerable and marginalized communities.

Our Goals

UNDP Kenya has a strong relationship with the Government of Kenya and is fully committed to further strengthening this partnership. The overall focus of UNDP in Kenya is to support the Government of Kenya to promote enhanced opportunities, empowerment, security (HIV/AIDS, natural and man-made disasters), sustainability and strategic outreach, all of which are detailed in the Country Programme Document (CPD) as outlined in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for Kenya.
