People in the centre of development

Creating jobs and overcoming social exclusion and inequality are high-priority goals for the country. UNDP works to improve the services available to vulnerable groups, eliminate barriers to the formal labor market and shorten the transition from school to work for young people. 

In recent years, UNDP has focused on supporting the country’s commitment to reducing unemployment and generating new jobs as an essential step in increasing social inclusion. This support yielded a range of measures to create jobs and provide skills that the long-term unemployed and other vulnerable groups – such as people with disabilities, members of the Roma community and youth – need to start up their own small businesses.

$23.5 million

invested over the past year in job creation and overcoming social exclusion to leave no one behind.
