New World: Inclusive Sustainable Human Development Initiatives

The “New World: Inclusive Sustainable Human Development Initiatives” Program develops an inclusive partnership mechanism with The Coca-Cola Foundation to encourage participation of civil society organizations (NGOs, CBOs) to support innovative, inclusive and sustainable solutions to key developmental challenges across several regions, including in Europe and Central Asia, South Asia, Middle East and Africa.

New World: Inclusive Sustainable Human Development Initiatives

In 2014, Coca-Cola expanded their partnership with UNDP to include a new program entitled, New World. The program is focused on inclusive, sustainable human development initiatives that make meaningful long-term improvements in communities and have measurable impact. The program is set up to provide grants to countries/communities who plan to implement programs that address different areas of development outlined in the Millennium Development Goals and the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN in 2000 and 2015, respectively. The program is focused on three areas:

  • Community water stewardship to increase access to safe drinking water and sanitation services and adaptation to climate change and improved water resources management through inclusive and practical community based approaches
  • Supporting active lifestyles and diseases prevention for enhanced community wellbeing
  • Empowering women and youth through improved education and job creation for more resilient communities.
