Overview

What We Do

UNDP's Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People is a responsive development agency that works together with the Palestinian people to fulfil their aspiration for sustainable human development based on self-determination, equality and freedom.

Our Goals

UNDP’s goal is to empower the Palestinian People to establish a viable State that is able to realize the right to development for its people. UNDP operates in the sectors of democratic governance and the rule of law; economic empowerment of the most vulnerable and private sector investment; environment and management of natural resources; and public and social infrastructure. more
