Financial inclusion is the availability and usage of financial products and services at affordable costs provided by professional institutions to all society segments including vulnerable and low-income population groups. Access to finance is essential for enabling individuals and families to invest in their lives and shape their future as well as it is essential for businesses to invest, employ people, and grow.
Promoting Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in programmes and projects is a priority for UNDP in Rwanda. Equally important, UNDP Rwanda strives to ensure gender parity, empowerment, and equal opportunities for all its staff, women and men. This applies to all areas of our office.
Rwanda is among eight pilot countries selected in January 2007 to implement the One UN Reform , which enables the UN System to provide a more effective and coherent response to the needs of the Government of Rwanda and its Development Partners. As part of the UN Country Team, UNDP works with other sister agencies to implement the “One UN – Delivering as One” process. UNDP-Rwanda’s programmes and activities respond to the challenges facing the country to achieve its own short and long term goals.
