This grant represents Canada’s long-term institutional support to the United Development Programme (UNDP). UNDP uses these funds, along with other donor funding, to achieve its mandate. Canada’s annual contribution is used to support core functions and the implementation of the UNDP's 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. As the UN’s development agency, UNDP supports country-led efforts to implement the Agenda 2030 and achieve the sustainable development goals. It works on multi-sectoral, integrated approaches to help countries eradicate poverty, accelerate structural transformation for sustainable development, and build resilience to crises and shocks. UNDP's focus is on providing development solutions adapted to country needs that help to: keep people out of poverty, strengthen effective, accountable and inclusive governance, enhance prevention and recovery for resilient societies, promote nature-based solutions for a sustainable planet, close the clean energy gap, and advance gender equality.
