Building on its strategic positioning and close partnership with the Government on the environment portfolio, UNDP Belize should continue to consolidate its work in this area, as well as strengthen its offerings to support inclusive growth and accountable institutions. UNDP should continue its support in strengthening national data management systems and mainstreaming SDGs in national planning.


UNDP Belize should map potential funding sources and leverage Belize’s (sub)regional relevance in resource mobilization. This should be done with support from the Regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean and the Panama Regional Hub. Working together with the Regional Bureau, the Belize country office should develop cost-effective solutions for UNDP to explore collaboration with the Government in implementing initiatives financed by IFIs.


UNDP should consolidate and expand its collaboration with the CSO Hub in HIV/AIDS and other UNDP working areas, to strengthen the CSO Hub’s effectiveness and sustainability.


UNDP should review its modus operandi in Belize to improve its efficiency and sustainability.


UNDP Belize should improve M&E practices, establish an office-wide documentation filing system, and promote regular knowledge sharing and exchange. The country office should strengthen its strategic communication with key stakeholders at both technical and political levels.
