The grant represents Canada`s institutional support to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). UNDP uses these funds, along with other donor funding, to achieve its mandate. As a central agency of the United Nations focusing on development, UNDP has a dual mandate to support countries in their development path toward achievement of the institutional development goals, and to coordinate the UN System at country level. UNDP works in three main areas: designing and implementing sustainable development approaches that benefit poor and marginalized groups and avoids irreversible environmental damage; improving democratic systems of governance that are inclusive and accountable; and resilience-building that helps countries and communities recover quickly and better withstand crisis. Canada's support to UNDP helps countries to promote sustainable and inclusive growth, advance democracy, and address conflict and natural disaster.
