PRIVATE SECTOR IN DEVELOPMENT

Thematic Areas

 

Resilience and crisis response

UNDP’s approach is to support micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) to become more resilient by partnering and engaging the private sector in disaster risk reduction, crisis preparedness, response, and recovery efforts.

Urbanization, population growth, environmental degradation, conflict and climate change intensify the existing underdevelopment, poverty and inequality. Further, natural disasters leave the low-income communities and the marginalized more vulnerable. Currently, worldwide displacement is at the highest level ever recorded and the triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss constitute further challenges pressing on developing countries.

UNDP’s approach in this regard is to support Micro, Small and Medium sized Enterprises (MSMEs) to become more resilient by partnering and engaging the private sector in disaster risk reduction, crisis preparedness, response, and recovery efforts.

Since 2015, ICPSD and CBi have closely worked to assist the private sector in resilience building. Due to the growing number of conflicts around the world and the increased demand for the effective crisis recovery mechanisms for fostering private sector development in and post- crisis settings, in 2022, ICPSD has designed and been developing new initiatives under the Resilience and Crisis Response thematic area.
