What We Do

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partners with people at all levels of society in more than a 170 countries, offering global perspectives and local insights to help empower lives and build resilient nations. We work on critical development issues, from combating and adapting to climate change, stopping the spread of epidemics such as HIV and AIDS, protecting the environment and promoting good, inclusive governance.
