OUR FOCUS

Democratic governance

Democratic Governance

Support to the process of democratic consolidation is a key area of cooperation between UNDP and the Government of Mongolia. During earlier years of the country’s transition to democracy, the focus of cooperation was on promoting key concepts of good governance, capacity building of newly established governance institutions, including the Parliament, the National Human Rights Commission, and development the first national human rights programme. As the country gradually overcomes challenges of its political and economic transition, the focus of cooperation shifted to promoting transparency and openness in public organizations, anticorruption, policy advocacy for decentralization, electoral reform for increased representation, political empowerment of women and access to legal services for the poor.

Our goals

UNDP will continue to support the ongoing democratic consolidation with emphasis on greater equality and equity; strengthened political and civic institutions; increased openness, accountability, transparency and integrity in public organizations, and strengthened local governance.
