OUR WORK - ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
MORE ABOUT ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
In recognition of the importance of environment in the national context, UNDP has prioritized energy and sustainable development with two underlying objectives: to advocate for a coherent and strategic vision on sustainable development; and to generate an increasing volume of grant funding for this sector to address critical national needs. UNDP launched its first full-fledged five-year environment programme in 2008, with the goal of including sustainable development principles into national strategies and policies. Since then, UNDP helped to promote a number of groundbreaking legislative initiatives on conserving fish, waste management, renewable energy sources, environmental code, energy efficiency and others.
