  • UNDP support countries in achieving the SDGs through integrated solutions. Today’s complex challenges from stopping the spread of disease to preventing conflict cannot be tackled neatly in isolation. For UNDP, this means focusing on systems, root causes and connections between challenges and not just thematic sectors to build solutions that respond to people’s daily realities.
  • Achieving the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, private sector, civil society and citizens alike to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations.
