Good governance, peace and

social cohesion

Peaceful. Just. Inclusive.

Democratic and transparent governance processes that promote peace, security and stability, the protection of human rights, and gender equality, are prerequisites for prosperity and inclusive development. UNDP in Mozambique is working to strengthen democratic institutions and processes to improve accountability, lawmaking, representation and civic participation, and, through South-South cooperation, seek innovative approaches for involving citizens in public dialogue to support Government efforts to achieve SDG 16. 

Making a variety of voices heard

UNDP in Mozambique seeks partnerships with the European Union, Sweden, and others, to improve the quality of participation and strengthen the role of civil society in shaping and monitoring the development agenda focusing on inclusive development and natural resource management. UNDP will promote the importance of inter-party dialogue, the media, democratic culture, and inclusivity for effective peacebuilding and conflict resolution. The institutional architecture for political dialogue and the capacity of civil society organizations will be strengthened to promote peace and social cohesion and sustain conflict resolution efforts.
