In 2019, South Africa (SA) celebrated 25 years of democracy. The United Nations Development Programme South Africa (UNDP SA) undertook a review of its work in improving the lives of South Africans over the past 25 years, and its contribution towards the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of the United Nations 75th anniversary celebrations, UNDP SA presents its 25-year highlight reel showcasing its impact within society through its various programmes, including:
- Inclusive, just and sustainable economic growth;
- Effective, efficient and transformative governance; and
- Climate resilience and sustainably managed natural resources.
The UNDP played a leading role in developing and contributing towards the achievement of the SDGs in South Africa, Africa and globally. This showcase will include lessons learned along the journey and feature current and future initiatives. On the virtual tour, audiences can download the 25-year report and view feedback from UNDP partners over the years. Looking ahead, UNDP SA will focus on innovative projects and partnerships to support South Africa and Africa in achieving the SDGs.
