Welcome to the Namibian SDG HUB, a platform where people come together to contribute to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Namibia SDG Hub aims to find radically new approaches that fit the complexity of current development challenges. UNDP Namibia is part of the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.

Through the Accelerator Lab, which is UNDP’s new way of working in development, we aim to transform our collective approach by introducing new services, backed by evidence and practice, and by accelerating the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. Sense-making, collective intelligence, solutions mapping, and experimentation will be part of the new offer from UNDP to governments.

In Namibia, we support analytical policy-oriented research and capacity building efforts aimed at enhancing job creation and reducing poverty at national and sub-national levels. We contribute towards improved democratic governance in the country by working in specific areas with the governance institutions that provide the best potential to improve oversight, human rights, accountability and participation.

We assist Namibia to better manage environmental risks and enhance capacities needed to advance resilience as outlined in the national development frameworks, with particular emphasis on strengthening national ownership and leadership of institutional mechanisms. We aim to strengthen capacities to deal with and manage environmental degradation including climate change adaptation and mitigation.
