Our intervention

UNDP supports the creation of an enabling environment for formal and innovative employment and decent green jobs, catalyzing investment for sustainable and resilient livelihoods for men and women throughout the country, including across the conflict divide. UNDP supports groups with limited access to the labour market, including but not limited to youth, women, people with disabilities, and ethnic minorities, by helping them to benefit from vocational education and training, better access to finance, and improved links between social protection schemes, employment measures and public services. UNDP aims to strengthen policies that address barriers for the inclusion of women in the labour market by tackling social stereotypes, ensuring access to affordable services, including care, addressing the issue of unpaid care work, and promoting women's access to entrepreneurship support schemes.

To enhance the accessibility of local public services across the country, particularly in rural areas, UNDP seeks to further strengthen local governments’ capacity to engage community members and diaspora in the planning, coordination, delivery and monitoring of improved services. Community empowerment, focusing on women and marginalized groups, is prioritized.

Private sector participation

UNDP supports the strengthening of a legal and policy framework that favours private sector participation in social initiatives. This makes it easier for private sector actors to initiate programmes in education and health, contribute to social causes, develop products and services aligned to Sustainable Development Goals and adopt socially responsible behaviours. Fostering inclusive business development for the generation of sustainable jobs at local level and strengthening of the local public authorities’ capacities to manage autonomously such processes are high on the agenda. Specific attention is paid to supporting business innovation, including in the field of alternative finance.

Local governance

In close cooperation with civil society and community members, UNDP helps improve the capacity of local public authorities to efficiently plan and implement local development priorities and improve local public services. It helps build local partnerships for joint decision-making and delivering services closer to citizens, for both women and men equally, including migrants, vulnerable and marginalized groups, such as the elderly and people with disabilities.

Area-based development and confidence-building

UNDP supports people on the two banks of the Nistru River and in ethnically diverse areas of the country (namely the Territorial Administrative Unit of Gagauzia and the Taraclia district), by implementing comprehensive, conflict-sensitive area-based interventions, funded by the EU, that address critical pressing needs across divides and reduce development gaps.
