Inclusive Growth

Moldova faces some of the most daunting development challenges across the Europe and Central Asia region, with the lowest level of fertility, an ageing population and the highest net emigration rates, which depletes social capital and constitutes a brain drain. It has the lowest employment rate in Europe, particularly for women and in rural areas, where the gender wage gap is also significant (13.2 per cent in 2015). The employment rate of the Roma is worse – half that of other demographic groups.

Our Goals

UNDP’s assistance to Moldova in the area of inclusive growth is framed around Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16. The focus is on sustainable, inclusive and green jobs creation, integrity-based business development, transparent and accountable, efficient and inclusive service provision, and equal and equitable access to economic opportunities.
