On the strength of its parliamentary, analytical and technical
co-operation work, the Division for Sustainable Development provides
targeted advisory services at the request of individual governments.
These services support specific policy initiatives and the requisite
institutional development and capacity-building.
Moreover, the Division formulates, implements and executes multidisciplinary
programmes and projects dealing with key aspects of sustainable development.
As countries take increasing responsibility for project execution, the
technical support is specifically designed to accelerate the formulation of
policies for sustainable development and provide substantive support for
their implementation at national and international levels.
The Division's technical expertise enables it to support developing
countries and countries with economies in transition in their
realization of sustainable development. Within the Division for
Sustainable Development, special expertise is available in a wide range
of issues in the fields of
Energy, Transport and Atmosphere, as well as
and Natural Resources.
