Impact by Regions, Countries & Territories

UNDP’s Global Programme supports crisis-affected contexts across all regions to strengthen the rule of law and human rights. In this section, we present five regional overviews, detailing our priorities and approach depending on the context, as well as feature select country and territory results from 2021.

Five contexts from the list (Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Mali and Yemen) illustrate the achievements of the Global Focal Point for the Rule of Law (GFP). In peacekeeping missions and transition settings, UNDP’s Global Programme works through the GFP to deliver integrated assistance with our UN partners.

GFP Global Focal Point Highlights



Since 2008, the Global Programme on Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights for Sustaining Peace and Fostering Development has provided assistance on rule of law and human rights in over 50 countries, territories, and regions. The current operational phase of the Global Programme began in January 2017 and was completed in 2021. This section provides an overview of our financial support mobilized and delivered in 2021, as well as over the lifetime of the Global Programme. Further, this section provides an overview of the country/territory project allocations made, as well as the 2021 budget for programme and policy work undertaken by UNDP’s Rule of Law, Justice, Security, and Human Rights team with detailed activities that were delivered (both globally and at the country/ territory level). We are thankful to our partners for their sustained investments in the Global Programme and look forward to future engagement during the phase IV (2022-2025) of the Global Programme on Rule of Law and Human Rights.
