Inequality and vulnerability reduction

 Although poverty in Latin American and the Caribbean has been cut nearly in half in the last decade, many have been unable to enter into the middle-class: the population at risk of falling into poverty reaches 200 million, according to UNDP figures. Photo: UNDP El Salvador

We work with government institutions to develop indicators that assess inequality measurements and multidimensional progress—one in which well-being means more than living above or below the poverty line.

UNDP programmes also target women, youth and people of indigenous and African descent to promote their engagement in decision-making at various levels.
