UNDP - Global Policy Centre for Resilient Ecosystems and Desertification

The Nairobi-based Global Policy Centre for Resilient Ecosystems and Desertification (GPC-Nairobi) is one of six UNDP Global Policy Centres, responsible for advancing global thinking and knowledge sharing on inclusive and sustainable development in drylands and other fragile ecosystems. Its immediate objective is to catalyze and energize the implementation of the MDGs in the affected countries by 2015. GPC-Nairobi shall improve livelihoods and social-economic well-being of drylands communities by: 1. Effective mainstreaming of drylands issues into development frameworks leading to budgetary allocation for implementing livelihoods options on the ground; advocacy, awareness creation and policy dialogue at national and sub-national levels; 2. Improve living standards for rural communities living in the drylands through strengthening the rural economy and creating and implementing livelihood opportunities; lessons learnt from these will inform policy processes; 3. Increase resilience and sustainability of the rural livelihoods system through improved capacity of local communities for governance and sustainable management of local resources.
