Poverty Reduction

Through our programmes we aim to promote sustainable human development by reducing poverty and generating jobs and livelihoods that help to improve the quality of life of all Iraqis.

Our Goals

The proposed outcome in this area is to ensure the GoI has the necessary institutional framework to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in line with pro-poor, equitable and inclusive socioeconomic and environmental policies and strategies. UNDP will support Iraq in accelerating inclusive growth to ensure equitable, broad-based human development is attained by all citizens in Iraq. The CPAP is designed to strengthen national structures and processes to systematically track and review progress towards the MDGs by collecting and analysing data disaggregated by gender, age and location.more
