The Social and Environmental Standards and Stakeholder Response Mechanism

The Social and Environmental Standards (SES), effective 1 January 2015, are integral to quality assurance and risk management in all UNDP programming. They define in clear and concrete terms what UNDP stands for, in line with our mandate and the UN’s normative framework. Stakeholder grievance and compliance review functions underpin the SES.
