United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) is the United Nation’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.

As an essential part of the UN Family, the United Nations Developmental Programme (UNDP) focuses on developmental issues. It is a trusted and impartial source for knowledge-based advice, experiences, and resources, and is a strong advocate of effective principles in a country’s economic growth. Additionally, UNDP seeks to address the many causes of poverty, as well as promote human development, in close cooperation with developing countries and countries in transition. In doing this, UNDP is helping countries to attract and use international aid in effective, transparent, and accountable ways.
