UNDP’s Representation Office in Brussels partners with the institutions of the European Union (EU). Together with our EU partners, we work to promote and advance the development agenda and the international UN standards both in EU policy discussions and in the external action of the European Union.

UNDP-EU partnership on the ground
The European Union is a very important partner to UNDP in contributing to our common global development agenda. We share the same values and objectives - respect for human rights and the rule of law; equal access to development opportunities for all; and fight against poverty around the world.
