OUR FOCUS

Economic and Strategic Policy 

Leaving no-one behind

UNDP supports Ghana in realizing its national development vision and related plans and strategies which aim to promote development that is inclusive and sustainable, including meeting the imperative to ensure that “the dividends of growth benefit all Ghanaians, irrespective of gender, location, socioeconomic and physical status”  and that no-one is left behind. UNDP’s offer includes support for integrated approaches to pro-poor policy-making and identification of options to ensure greater equity; transformational development planning and mainstreaming of the Sustainable Development Goals; and timely production and effective use of data. UNDP’s work on inclusive growth is based on the premise that growth cannot be resilient or sustainable without equity, voice and participation and that these are critical for people to achieve their full capabilities and functionings. We work with key national partners, in cooperation with UN Agencies and others, to help bring about transformational change, bridge spatial and socio-economic inequalities and enhance human development outcomes. 

Our Goals

Ensuring inclusive, sustainable and resilient development pathways and gender equality and women's empowerment are central to UNDP's strategic support to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and helping countries bring about transformational change. UNDP works to help countries ensure that development policies are equitable and that the poor and women have a real voice in governance institutions at all levels, that they have equal participation in public dialogue and influence the decisions that will determine the future of their families and communities. These strategies are integrated into UNDP's work on poverty reduction, democratic governance, crisis prevention and recovery, energy and environment to achieve sustainable human development.
