FAST FACTS: UNDP Parliamentary Development Work (June 2016)

UNDP is the largest provider of technical assistance to parliaments worldwide, supporting one in three parliaments around the world and approximately seventy parliamentary support programmes across the range of developing country typologies, including countries in transition, SIDS and crisis and post-crisis contexts.

UNDP’s parliamentary strengthening programming is done as part of its wider work on inclusive political processes including support for elections, constitutionmaking processes, civic engagement, and women’s political participation and leadership.

UNDP’s support focuses on empowering parliaments as key actors for delivering sustainable development priorities within the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Priorities include: climate change, transparency and anticorruption, human rights, women’s political empowerment and crisis prevention and recovery.
