Our Goals

For the period from 2015 to 2030, UNDP sets the goals continuing and extending the work that was started by MDGs. Sustainable development of Belarus focuses on key principles, such as resilience – to withstand shocks and their impact on human development, the economy and the environment and responsiveness – to strengthen the systems of governance at central and local level though constructive, open dialogue between the Government, civil society and the private sector.

Our progress in Belarus

According to the results of implementation of MDGs, the Republic of Belarus achieved progress in many areas: the national poverty line declined from 30.5 per cent to 4.8 per cent in 2014. The country has significantly reduced the prevalence of tuberculosis, and 95 per cent of persons living with HIV who are included in care are receiving antiretroviral treatment. Belarus ranked 28 on the gender inequality index and the share of women in the national parliament increased from 13.5 per cent to 29.7 per cent in 2014. The country continues to preserve its biodiversity and expand its specially protected areas.more
