What We Do

UNDP in South Sudan focuses its programmes on: democratic governance and stabilization; human development and inclusive growth; and gender equality and women’s empowerment. UNDP aims to work in partnership with the Transitional Government of National Unity, non-governmental organisations, civil society organisations, community-based organisations, multilateral aid agencies, bilateral donors, academia, media and the private sector, providing policy advice, technical support, advocacy and contributions to strengthen real improvements in the lives of South Sudanese people.

Our Priorities

The aim of UNDP is to support the progress towards peace and reconciliation, early recovery and governance, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are committed to working together with the country authorities and with the citizens towards building the nation’s vision of a peaceful, democratic, and prosperous South Sudan.

There is no development without peace, but neither lasting peace without development.

UNDP is a solution-oriented, knowledge-based development organization, supporting countries to reach their own development objectives and internationally agreed goals, including the Sustainable Development Goals.
