What We Do
Since 1966, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. Inclusive growth, better services, environmental sustainability, good governance, and security are fundamental to development progress. We offer our expertise in development thinking and practice, and our decades of experience at country level, to support countries to meet their development aspirations and to bring the voices of the world’s peoples into deliberations. In 2016, UNDP is continuing its work to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or Global Goals, as they help shape global sustainable development for the next 15 years. UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas: Sustainable development Democratic governance and peace building Climate and disaster resilience In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable. The annual Human Development Report, commissioned by UNDP, focuses the global debate on key development issues, providing new measurement tools, innovative analysis and often controversial policy proposals. The global Report's analytical framework and inclusive approach carry over into regional, national and local Human Development Reports, also supported by UNDP.Read More

Projects and Initiatives
Within the framework of the cooperation between the United Nations Development Programme and the State of Kuwait and the high interest in activating the role of the National Assembly in exercising its legislative, oversight and representative functions, the two parties agreed on implementing the “Support Project for the National Assembly Secretariat”. The project aims at strengthening the capacities of the National Assembly Secretariat for better parliamentary practice that could contribute to the country’s five year National Mid–range Development Plan (2010 to 2014) as part of the strategic vision for Kuwait in 2035. Achieving this objective will include developing a long-term training plan to strengthen the National Assembly Secretariat in which the establishment of a Parliamentary Training Center plays a big role.more
