​Access to Information

      Consistent with UNDP’s Information Disclosure Policy, (105) UNDP is committed to ensuring that relevant information about UNDP Programmes and Projects will be disclosed to help affected communities and other stakeholders understand the opportunities, risks an​d impacts of the proposed activities. UNDP will ensure that information on a Programmes and/or Project’s purpose, nature and scale, and duration, and its risks and potential impacts, is made available in a timely manner, in an accessi​ble place, and in a form and language understandable to affected persons and other stakeholders, including the general public, so they can provide meaningful input into Programme and/or Project design and implementation. Such disclosure will occur early in the Programme and/or Project development process and on an ongoing basis.
