UNDP and the UN

UNDP within the UN system

One of UNDP’s most important roles is to support participatory and accountable management of the Resident Coordinator system through enhanced UN system coordination, efficiency and effectiveness, and the strategic integration of development efforts within the context of national development priorities. In a world of limited resources, UNDP together with the UN and other development partners, helps to support the most effective use of UN and international aid resources.

UNDP Around the world

UNDP has a unique voice in international development. 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 informed by academia, government and civil society who contribute data, ideas and best practices.
