United Nations Development Program (UNDP)

United Nations Development Program (UNDP)

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s agency for fighting poverty, promoting sustainable development, and preventing crises. The UNDP helps developing countries come up with long-term, socially responsible, and sustainable development plans so they can fight all kinds of poverty. In this capacity the UNDP plays a key role in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The UNDP has the largest international network of any UN agency with a presence in 170 countries. It is also the most important UN partner for the SDC. The UNDP helps developing countries come up with plans and ideas for sustainable development, build up their institutions, deal with climate change, get out of crises, and promote democratic government.

Through its partnership with the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the UNDP has access to a tool that gives the poorest people access to financial markets and local systems for funding development. The UNDP focuses on achieving Sustainable Development Goals 1 (no poverty), 10 (lessening inequality), and 16. (Peace, justice and strong institutions).
