Poverty Reduction

Through initiatives in villages and at the national policy level, UNDP supports government to address the economic exclusion of marginalized people; also, to stimulate better long-term livelihood opportunities and decent employment for all Cook Islanders, Niueans, Samoans and Tokelauans. The focus is on getting young people, women and those with disabilities involved in the economy.
