The United Nations Development Programme.
UNDP supports countries in their efforts to successfully address diverse development challenges, framed around three broad settings which require different forms of support:
- Eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions;
- Accelerating structural transformations for sustainable development;
- Building resilience to crises and shocks
These three development challenges often coexist within the same country, requiring tailored solutions that can adequately address specific deficits and barriers. Underpinning all three development challenges is a set of core development needs, including the need to strengthen gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, and to ensure the protection of human rights.
UNDP is thriving to provide countries with more functional registration and identification systems. UNDP is co-chairing the Legal Identity Agenda task force in support of SDG target 16.9 which refers to providing legal identity for all and will also facilitate reaching comprehensive birth registration by 2030.
