Mission and objectives
Within UNDP’s Global Policy Network (GPN), the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) has the responsibility of developing all relevant policy and guidance to support the results of UNDP’s Strategic Plan (2022-2025), i.e. supporting countries to make a difference to millions of lives. BPPS hosts UNDP’s institutional effectiveness work and represents UNDP at multi-stakeholder fora, government and civil society dialogues and engages in UN inter-agency coordination.

The SDG Finance Academy promotes UNDPs sustainable finance services by transferring knowledge internally across its 170 country offices, and to private- and public-sector partners around the world. The e-Learning Programme is open to anyone anywhere and introduces basic concepts of sustainable finance followed by deep dives that will help audiences to align and leverage sustainable finance important for delivering on the SDGs and climate targets.

Over 2000 people have accessed the e-learning modules in English since September 2023 and we need to make them available in more languages to enhance the positive impact.
