United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN's global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP is present in Belarus since 1992. UNDP’s mandate in the country is determined by the Agreement between the Government of Belarus and UNDP of 24 September 1992, which requires UNDP “to support and supplement the national efforts at solving the most important problems of its economic development and to promote social progress and better standards of life”.
UNDP currently works under its Country Programme Document (CPD) 2016-2020. The CPD focuses on three priority areas in line with the national development priorities: 1) Stronger systems of inclusive and responsive governance; 2) Greener growth incorporating productive capacities that target employment and create livelihoods for vulnerable groups; and 3) Better access to basic services for vulnerable groups.
In 2015 Belarus committed itself to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under Agenda 2030. UNDP helps the country to implement these commitments and mainstream them at the national and local level.
