What We Do
UNDP in Turkmenistan is promoting human development and supporting the national development agenda. UNDP partners with the Government of Turkmenistan and other development organizations on a broad spectrum of issues relating to democratic governance, environment and energy, and human development. In all these areas, we help strengthen national capacity and pilot innovative solutions.
Being a middle-income country, Turkmenistan has entered into the new format of partnership with UNDP realizing the urgency for greater national ownership of development results. In doing so, Turkmenistan has committed to building on the achievements made by the country in the socio-economic development and accelerating progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. In this new environment, UNDP is supporting Turkmenistan’s efforts in improving democratic governance, strengthening national response to climate change and mainstreaming human development policies and strategies through high quality policy advice and facilitating access to the international best practices and knowledge, skills and resources.
The objective of this project is to engage the Government of Turkmenistan on its duty and capacity to comply with its international human rights standards and to improve the knowledge and capacity of rights holders to claim their rights. more
The project supports creating the enabling environment for the establishment of a functional, effective and ecologically coherent system of protected areas for Turkmenistan. In particular, it aims to help the Government in consolidating and physically linking a number of proximate fragments of different categories of protected areas with unique biodiversity into a single, more cohesive management unit - a national park.more
UNDP and the Deaf and Blind Society of Turkmenistan are working together with the Government to promote employment opportunities for persons with disabilities and, most importantly, to review the national legislation for compliance with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and formulate a National Action Plan on people with disabilities.more
