Democratic Governance

Under the Democratic Governance and Human Rights pillar of the UNDAF, UNDP will work to strengthen the functioning of public institutions, including reform of regulations, within the context of the civil service reform strategy. UNDP will address capacity in all its interventions, as well as seeking to achieve gender equality.

Our Goals

The 1997 Constitution provides the framework for strengthening the governance processes in The Gambia for poverty reduction, sustainable improvement of the socio­economic and living standards of all. Progress is being made in some areas on financial and economic governance. Civil Service Reform is also ongoing with proposals to increase salaries, improve policy planning and management and institutionalize a performance reward system. These measures are critical to improving public service delivery, addressing poverty and gender issues, in a context where local communities are largely dependent on public service, especially at local government level.more
