Crisis prevention & recovery

People and their social and economic needs are in the centre of our work in the crisis areas. We promote confidence within and across communities divided by conflicts and help people rebuild their lives disrupted by crisis.

Our Goals

Impartiality and good standing makes UNDP a trusted partner to all parties to the conflict. Through this strategic positioning we are uniquely placed to deliver both humanitarian and recovery assistance, as well as to support local and international conflict transformation and peace-building efforts. more
