What We Do
UNDP partners globally with all levels of society in more than 170 countries and territories where we operate. We offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations that can withstand crisis, and that drive and sustain growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. Under the overarching goal of empowering lives and building resilient nations, UNDP in Ghana focuses on three inter-connected thematic areas: promoting inclusive growth, democratic governance and sustainable development.
We are committed to help Ghana achieve the global Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as the national objectives articulated in consecutive Five-Year Plans. We aim to improve the lives of the poorest women and men, the marginalized and the disadvantaged in Ghana.
