Environment and Energy
Angola has developed in the last decade comprehensive environmental legislation regarding water resources, petroleum, mines, and land, and have increased engagement with regional and international bodies and partners. As a result, the UNDP Country Office has been also engaged in environment projects in Angola in the last few years and this continues to be a key area of intervention, not only because of the UNDP’s global strategic plan but also as a direct result of the Angolan State’s continued focus on this area.
UNDP’s support for sustainable development gained relevance as the future resiliency of the economy and people of Angola are dependent on the proper management of its sovereign wealth.more
