The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the United Nations’ network for global development. It was established in 1965 when the General Assembly of the United Nations merged the United Nations Expanded Programme of Technical Assistance and the United Nations Special Fund.
UNDP advocates for change and focuses on connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources so that they can create better lives. Operating in 166 countries, UNDP works with these nations on forming solutions to global and national development challenges. It helps them to create a local capacity, with the country’s specific needs in mind, so that they can begin to build upon the resources they have and create something more.
