Democratic Governance

Our intervention

UNDP Pakistan works to support democratic development and the promotion and protection of the rule of law in Pakistan. Democratic Governance works towards improved governance at federal, provincial and particularly district levels by supporting the devolution and decentralisation objectives through political and fiscal devolution, transparency and accountability, strengthening of state institutions, capacity and promotion of local participation and ownership.

Transparency. Efficiency. Participation

We aim to build effective and capable governance institutions that are accountable and transparent, inclusive and responsive — from elections to participation of women and the poor. UNDP provides strategic support to institutions, both governmental and non-governmental, working in areas such as decentralization, civic education, rule of law, transparency and women's political empowerment.
