The UNDP Zambia monthly newsletter is aimed at highlighting key and succesful activities undertaken by the agency covering our 3 primary priority areas namely , Governanace and Gender, Environment and Energy, Poverty Reduction and SDGs.
The 2016 Zambia Human Development Report (ZHDR) entitled, Industrialisation and Human Development: Poverty Reduction through Wealth and Employment Creation speaks in particular to SDG 9 which aims to promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation.
This Report is intended as just such a contribution to the industrialisation debate in Zambia. It presents quantitative and qualitative data that define Zambia's current place on the industrialisation map. The Report notes that for industrialisation to be effective and sustainable, several other factors must support it.
UNDP works with the Government and people of Zambia to achieve the vision 2030 , the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the implementation of the 7th National Development Plan.
Our work in Zambia is guided corporately by the UNDP Strategic Plan, the United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework and our Country Programme Document (CPD) 2016 -2021.
Organisationally we are structured around four distinct and yet interlinked programmatic areas, namely, environment and energy, governance and gender, poverty reduction and SDGs; and health systems strengthening for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
