About My Work
SEPA (Swedish Environmental Protection Agency) and the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) initiated a four-year programme funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Corporation Agency) in an effort to integrate environmental and social concerns into broader sustainable development policy making.
The SEPA-UNDP programme will provide targeted support to four countries— Colombia, Kenya, Mongolia, and Mozambique — in coordination with environmental management projects already supporting the extractive industries in these countries. The programme will strengthen the environmental, gender, human rights, and rule of law dimensions of public administration work in large-scale mining sectors, working with ministries of the environment, mining, planning and finance, as well as other public and private stakeholders.
Areas of interest
oil and natural gas, governance and anti-corruption, environment, social accountability, human rights, contract and licensing, monitoring revenue collection, redistribution and sustainable development
