As one of our largest government contributors, Switzerland is a vital partner in UNDP’s mission to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality and achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UNDP’s work and the priorities of the Swiss Government converge in many areas, especially in our shared ambition to help countries reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through promoting conflict prevention, good governance and inclusive economic development.

Switzerland hosts a UNDP representation office in Geneva, advancing collaboration between international organizations, Swiss civil society, academia and the private sector on human rights, health, humanitarian action, environment, climate change and disaster risk response.
