Protecting development gains
Sustaining inclusive growth involves safeguarding the environment, strengthening resilience and ensuring that the benefits of natural resources are equitably shared. In this regard, UNDP in Mozambique is working to increase resilience and improve natural resource management through enhancing the capacities of national institutions contributing to the sustainable development goals agenda27. Interventions will target women and youth in districts where climate change, natural hazards and natural resources management issues are particularly critical28. Innovative approaches, building on South-South and globally relevant experiences will ensure that beneficiaries are an active part of long-term solutions.
Risk-informed Sustainable Development
Information management systems for the environment, biodiversity, natural resources, climate change, and natural disasters, will be upgraded by improving data analysis and dissemination, strengthening national capacity for monitoring, raising awareness, and highlighting best practices to improve evidence-based decision-making under the leadership of the Ministry of Land, Environment and Rural Development. Using its strong decentralized presence, UNDP is promoting transparent decision-making processes concerning natural resources management, land management, and population displacement, particularly through local planning processes.
