UNDP projects are designed in partnership with and based on inputs from national stakeholders and contribute directly to the national priorities of Iran, the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and and the UNDP Country Programme Document . Projects focus on diverse programme areas such as Inclusive Growth and Development, Health and Development, Environment and Sustainable Development and Disaster Risk Management.
UNDP projects are largely nationally executed and all of them are implemented by national partners.
1. Inclusive Growth and Development
The Inclusive Growth initiative aims to support the strengthening of a national inclusive growth modeling framework for development planning purposes. The project is implemented through partnership between CPAP Poverty Outcome Board members (including Strategic Planning and Control; Ministry of Cooperatives, Labour and Welfare; Ministry of Interior; Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and UNDP.
The SMLWR project aims to derive a “watershed”-based, development planning system and institutional framework that can sustain both eco-system services and socio-economic development. The Project is implemented through partnership between the Iranian Forests, Range and Watershed Organization ( Ministry of Jihad Agriculture), Ministry of Interior’s Provincial Governorates and UNDP.
The Social Protection project aims to develop a national social protection and empowerment model and framework which can support: 1) improved and integrated national and sub-national planning approaches that contribute to improving lives of poor and vulnerable people; and, 2) enhancing access to education, skills, health, employment, income and social protection for human development outcomes. The project is implemented through partnership with Iranian Ministry of Cooperatives, Labour and Welfare, and UNDP.
2. Health and Development
Scaling Up HIV/AIDS Prevention Programs towards Universal Access with Increasing the Partnership of Non-Government Sector
In line with National Strategic Plan of the country, this project aims to assist the national partners in their endeavor to halt and begin to reverse HIV/AIDS spreading among general population and most at risk groups by 2015.
The project aims to support the priority gaps in the National Tuberculosis (TB) Control Programme by dramatically reducing the burden of TB in the poor and vulnerable populations by 2015 in line with the MDGs and the Stop TB Partnership targets.
The Project has been developed in line with the goals of National Strategic Plan for Malaria Elimination aiming at elimination of falciparum malaria (the fatal type of malaria infections) by 2016 and all cases of malaria including vivax by 2025.
3. Environment and Sustainable Development
The project aims to establish a novel type of collaborative conservation system in which all stakeholder groups are fully engaged in planning, implementing and monitoring of resource management planning to ensure the protection and sustainability of use and exploitation of all biodiversity, renewable natural resources and ecological processes.
The CACP is a long standing initiative between Iran’s Department of Environment, UNDP and a number of committed international partners, namely the Wildlife Conservation Society, Panthera, Cheetah Conservation Fund and IUCN’s Cat Specialist Group.
The scale-up phase of the CIWP runs from 1 May 2013 to 31 Dec. 2014. The goal of this project is to enhance the effectiveness and sustainability of Iran’s system of wetland protected areas as a tool for conserving globally significant biodiversity. The project is implemented through partnership with Iran's Department of Environment, Ramsar Regional Center in West and Central Asia and UNDP.
4. Disaster Risk Management
The project mainly aims to integrate Disaster Risk Reduction concepts and standards into National Development planning, while focusing on enhancing DRR/DRM institutions capacities.
