Information:
The United Nations Development Programme mission in Gambia was set up in 1975 as a partner in development with the Government in a number of projects spread out among many area, and has moulded its services in response to the nation's development hurdles, and attainment of the MDGs. UNDP’s support has contributed to strengthening sector planning capacity and the formulation of key policies, covering areas such as employment, enterprise development, youth capacity development and trade among others and hence supported government in the preparation of its National Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP II) .

Their programme focuses on five Priority Practice areas which are:
• Democratic governance
• Energy and environmental issues
• Crisis prevention and recovery
• Poverty reduction
• HIV awareness
• Empowerment of women

One key area in which the UN Development System is collaborating with The Gambia Government and its development partners is poverty alleviation. The Gambia's strategy for Poverty Alleviation (SPA) was formulated with the support of UNDP in close collaboration with other UN system agencies and development partners and presented to a Round Table Conference in Geneva in April 1994. UNDP continues to play its catalytic role through upstream policy level consultations with the Government and other development partners, to provide direct assistance in the identification of priority development objectives, formulation of required programmes, and utilisation of the Round Table process to mobilise resources for development activities in The Gambia.

The process of formulating a Poverty Alleviation Strategy was started in 1991 with the assistance of the UNDP.
