Partnership at country level
The strength of the UNDP-EU partnership is at the country level. Together, we are currently present in more than 100 developing and transition countries, where we support governments, local authorities, civil society and citizens to advance on human development.
As illustrated by the table below, the region which has received most EU-funding for UNDP programmes is the Asia and Pacific region.
During the years when the crisis in Iraq was most acute, the EU was an important donor of the Multi-donor Trust Fund for Iraq, which explains the high funding for the Arab States region during 2004-2006.
Some of the results achieved worldwide with the help of the partnership are illustrated in the yearly “Improving lives” reports, which highlight the joint UN/EU efforts in support of national development in more than 110 countries. UNDP’s development coordination role in the UN – globally and at country level – provides a valuable angle to our collaboration.
Also our success stories highlight some of the many results that we have supported countries to achieve.
