Democratic Governance

UNDP is poised to assist in deepening democracy and consolidating the Maldives' democratic transition in the context of an evolving democracy. We aim to support to strengthen democratic institutions, processes and practices, promote their sustainability and improve social cohesion and human security for all people of the Maldives.

Our Goals

Our new focus is on enabling an enhanced voice and participation for more effective and inclusive governance systems. Using a human rights-based approach, the framework will provide a means to improve the capacities of key institutions such as the Parliament, Judiciary, Elections Commission and Local Councils, through targeted capacity building and the provision of a platform for decision-making on development priorities. In doing so, our Governance programme also seeks to empower women and youth, and enhance their participation in public life.more
