Democratic Governance

UNDP brings people together both within nations and around the world, building partnerships and sharing ways to promote participation, accountability, and effectiveness at all levels. UNDP helps countries to strengthen their electoral and legislative systems, improve their access to justice and public administration, and develop a greater capacity to deliver basic services to those most in need.

Our progress in Belarus

UNDP projects have contributed to a better understanding of international human rights standards by the juridical authorities, a simplification of administrative procedures and broader adoption of the “one window” approach, and have strengthened the capacity of the legislative authorities for analysing law enforcement practices. The Government of Belarus has been assisted in improving the legal mechanisms for coordinating and managing international technical assistance.more
