Sustainable Development

UNDP brings people together within nations and around the world, building partnerships and sharing ways to promote participation, accountability and effectiveness at all levels. We help countries strengthen their electoral and legislative systems, improve access to justice and public administration, and develop a greater capacity to deliver basic services to those most in need. This portfolio also encompasses poverty. Poverty is a complicated issue touching on various areas and remains an important issue impacting not only those affected, but society as a whole. While poverty is often reduced to income or hunger it  is in fact a relative phenomenon with multiple facets.

 

Our Goal

The goal of the UNDP Sub-regional Office for Barbados and OECS is to support the strengthening of democracy and governance and the creation of an enabling environment for sustainable human development for its 10 programme countries by: Promoting alternative development frameworks and strategies for sustainable and equitable growth; promoting global and regional cooperation to achieve human development; strengthening capacity of key governance institutions for people-centered development and fostering social cohesion; promoting decentralization that supports participatory local governance; strengthening local organizations and empowering communities; and promoting an efficient and accountable public sector that serves all citizens.
