UNDP has been operating in Suriname since 1994 supporting the Surinamese Government and the people to achieve national goals.
UNDP Suriname focuses expertise on three different areas: poverty reduction; democratic governance; environment and energy.
The GCCA+ Suriname Adaptation Project and the Japan Caribbean Climate Change Project (JCCCP), hosted a knowledge sharing event in relation to World Environment Day in villages in Upper Suriname from June 5th till June 8th. The theme this year is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution”.
Eighty four households in Tepu, located in Suriname’s Hinterland, now have power from a newly installed solar system. The project, officially titled ‘Women Empowerment & Renewable Solar Energy Pilot Project’ was supported by the UN Development Programme’s Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (UNDP J-CCCP) in partnership with the Amazon Conservation Team Suriname (ACT).
