Description

About


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has worked in India since 1951 in almost all areas of human development, from systems and institutional strengthening to inclusive growth and sustainable livelihoods, as well as sustainable energy, environment and resilience. UNDP’s programmes continue to fully integrate a global vision for catalytic change with India’s national priorities.


With over 30 projects on the ground in almost every state, today UNDP India works to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by transforming traditional models to do development differently.  In a rapidly changing global environment, the work of UNDP and the broader UN family aligns with the Government of India's new national development vision, India 2030, and builds upon the Sustainable Development Goals. UNDP India's country programme for 2018-2022 has three major focus areas:



  • Inclusive growth

  • Environment and energy

  • Strengthening systems and institutions


These are supported by a framework of renewed partnerships and blended finance solutions, a pool of financial and technical resources for greater impact and scale, and South-South expertise.


A partnership for sustainable development


UNDP has supported India for the last five decades, both at the federal and provincial levels, in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through mainstreaming, acceleration and policy support. UNDP supports the government to reflect the new global agenda in national development plans and policies, to accelerate progress on SDG targets, and provide expertise on sustainable development and governance to the central and state governments at all stages of implementation.
