About Company: UNDP is a global knowledge network advocating for human development and connecting countries to knowledge, experiences and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP works with countries to develop and implement their own solutions to development challenges. Aligned with the Swaziland National Development Strategy (NDS 2013-2022), the UNDAF (2016-2020) and UNDP Strategic Plan, we are committed to supporting the government and people of Swaziland in the following areas: (a) poverty and inequality reduction, inclusive growth and sustainable development; (b) equitable and efficient delivery and access to social services; and (c) good governance and accountability. UNDP contribution is to the first and third UNDAF priority areas through three mutually reinforcing and supporting outcomes, revolving around: (a) inclusive economic growth and sustainable development; (b) resilience and risk reduction, incorporating sustainable natural resource management; and (c) good governance, equity and citizen participation. As durable change in these areas also requires effective governance, the country programme supports the promotion of accountability and transparency through citizen participation. The programme promotes an equitable and human rights-based approach to development, e.g., by increasing voice and participation, particularly for women and youth.
