Governance is essential to MDGs attainment, offering the stabilizing environment necessary for their realization. This is particularly true of poverty eradication.
Favorable political conditions in terms of the rule of law, a competent public administration, clearly defined responsibilities and a well-functioning judiciary system guarantee good management of power resources.
Conscious of these challenges, UNDP Algeria has implemented projects that promote governance as well as institutional and economical reforms for more than ten years.
Governance is one of the four pillars of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2007-2011 with emphasis on the achievement of two objectives in 2011:
- Modernization and consolidation of national institutions better adapted to citizens’ needs
- Increasing the opportunities of citizens to intervene in favor of development in partnership with local and national institutions
UNDP Algeria contributes to national efforts to consolidate the rule of law in promoting institutional reforms through increased capacity for national institutions and civil society.
UNDP supports the Algerian Government reforms program: it contributes to the modernization of the judiciary and penitentiary systems and to the reinforcement of Parliament’s capacities.
UNDP also supports economic reforms. It offers its contribution to privatization efforts, partnerships and the promotion of investments.
Results are already evident. Concrete examples are available: the creation of the law portal, the online availability of judicial records, development of follow-up for detainees and help for their reinsertion, support to the national NGOs for the MDGs network, and the National Report on Human Development with the National Economic and Social Council (CNES).
