Present in some 170 countries and territories, we work to end the injustice of poverty, inequality and climate change. Together with our broad network of experts and partners, we help nations to build integrated, lasting solutions for people and planet.
In Kazakhstan, our focus is on sustaining the country’s growth trajectory by diversifying economy, modernizing institutions, reducing inequalities and sustainably managing natural resources.

Almost 80 percent of SDG targets are reflected in Kazakhstan’s national strategic development documents. In 2019, we launched a new a multi-stakeholder SDG platform to advance the nationalization of SDGs and accelerate their implementation. The SDG Platform brings public and private, national and local level stakeholders, to foster a dialogue that supports the efforts of implementing the Agenda 2030 in Kazakhstan.
In 2020, a tiny virus ignited a development emergency. For the first time in 30 years, global human development declined. People everywhere struggled to stop the spread of the virus, save lives, and respond to the unprecedented socio-economic trauma it created.
The UNDP report for 2020 (in English) reflects:
- The main results of UNDP's work in 2020 in 170 countries and territories.
- Solutions and research that help contain and strategically respond to COVID-19 and its consequences.
- Strategic vision for recovery and further development after the pandemic.
Making gender equality a reality is a core commitment of UNDP. We integrate gender equality principles across its all areas of work. In June 2020, we achieved a Silver level certification of the Gender Equality Seal.
In Kazakhstan, we continue our support to the country in meeting the gender equality and women’s empowerment commitments. We promote measures that offer more opportunities for women to participate in decision-making, to be more competitive on the labour market, and to stand jointly against the gender-based violence.
