Description

About:


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. It help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.


This is a critical time for the world. At UNDP, we see this period as a huge opportunity to advance the global sustainable development agenda. In September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, which will guide global development priorities through 2030.


UNDP's Strategic Plan (2018-2021) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts:



  • Eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions

  • Accelerate structural transformations

  • Build resilience to shocks and crises


To respond to these issues, and better focus its resources and expertise to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, UNDP has identified a set of approaches that we call our Signature Solutions:



  • Keeping people out of POVERTY

  • GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies

  • Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE

  • ENVIRONMENT: nature-based solutions for development

  • Clean, affordable ENERGY

  • Women's empowerment and GENDER equality


In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.


The annual Human Development Report, commissioned by UNDP, focuses the global debate on key development issues, providing new measurement tools, innovative analysis and often controversial policy proposals. The global Report's analytical framework and inclusive approach carry over into regional, national and local Human Development Reports, also supported by UNDP.


Mission:


On the ground in about 170 countries and territories, UNDP works to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress.


Promoting Cooperation


In 2010, the United Nations Development Programme and Chinese government signed a new agreement on strengthening South-South cooperation between the two sides. This was the first time China signed an agreement with a multilateral partner. Since then, UNDP and China have jointly implemented multiple innovative projects, not only to promote South-South cooperation between China and other developing countries, but also to improve China's participation in international affairs.


Matching Unique Solutions


Every country has different development needs and challenges, South-South tries to match unique solutions to developing countries' needs. UNDP implements projects to promote the practice of experience-sharing between countries and offer a range of policy choices for different countries. Our work with China focuses on five key areas: (1) Trilateral Cooperation (2) Experience Sharing on Foreign Aid Systems (3) Global and Regional Issues (4) Private Sector Engagement and South-South Cooperation (5) Sharing Development Experiences and Lessons through South-South Dialogue.
