The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is an agency within the United Nations system which has presence in 193 countries and territories. As UNDP, we work in partnership with Governments, UN agencies, civil society, foundations, academia and the private sector, to promote and support national development priorities through local solutions and South - South Cooperation (SSC).
