The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works throughout the world to help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. UNDP focuses principally on three main issues namely; sustainable development, democratic governance and peacebuilding, and climate and disaster resilience. Through all their activities, UNDP encourages the respect of human rights and the empowerment of the most vulnerable communities. UNDP’s work on climate and disaster resilience consists on integrating issues of climate and disaster risk at the national level, and more particularly to build resilience and ensure that development remains risk-informed and sustainable. Through a risk assessment and other measures, UNDP undertakes multi-layered capacity building to prevent, mitigate and prepare for natural hazards such as droughts. For instance, the Programme provides assistance to establish early warning systems, design evacuation roads and strengthen infrastructure.
