UNDP builds capacity of the non-state actors (CSOs) and Office of the Ombudsman in human rights monitoring, documenting and reporting. By enhancing access to information and transparency in the judiciary, UNDP contributes to justice service delivery at the local level and better coordination of legal aid provision.
Decentralization of State Services
UNDP promotes community led development and increases institutional capacity of municipal authorities to engage citizens into local development. Our approach puts strong emphasis on community empowerment, building the spirit of activism and social inclusion and dialogue between local authorities and communities. On the policy level, UNDP provides expert support to development of a number of laws related to decentralization as well as provides platform for public policy discussion.
