Democratic governance

Delivering better services for all

Good governance is an essential ingredient 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 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 has helped in the design and development of numerous policies, laws and measures to increase the accountability of public institutions. Significant support has also been provided to assist officials from central and local government in improving aid effectiveness, combating corruption and increasing inter-ethnic dialogue and cooperation.
