UNDP’s commitment is crystallized in the Global Programme for Strengthening the Rule of Law, Human Rights, Justice and Security for Sustainable Peace and Development. Anchored on strategic partnerships, and in direct response to the Secretary-General’s priorities on prevention and sustaining peace, UNDP’s work through the Global Programme represents a unique and significant contribution to making the SDGs a reality, especially in contexts affected by crisis, conflict, and transitions.
