Good governance is essential part of effective democracy. UNDP works closely with Government and institutions at all levels to increase skills and capacities to design more responsive and inclusive policies and to deliver their services more effectively.
In recent years, UNDP has provided substantial assistance to municipalities throughout the country to help them meet the challenges of decentralization, achieving significant results through increased cooperation amongst municipalities.
UNDP supports greater citizen participation in decision-making and has helped in the design and development of numerous policies, laws and measures to increase the accountability of public institutions.
As part of this commitment to good democratic governance, UNDP is also providing significant support for officials from central and local government to improve aid effectiveness, to combat corruption and increase inter-ethnic dialogue and cooperation.
