UNDP is working to end poverty for good. Our approach is multi dimensional and goes beyond income, to lift people out of poverty and prevent them from falling back in. We go after the roots of poverty, including inequality, exclusion and Climate Change - focusing on Sustainable Development, Democratic Governance and Crisis Prevention and Recovery in Jamaica. UNDP's Country Office in Kingston serves Jamaica, The Bahamas, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands
