Document Summary

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) recognizes that many of the world's development challenges can be overcome with the help of vibrant economic growth driven by private enterprises that create jobs, generate tax revenues and provide vital goods and services for the world's poor. Towards this end, UNDP works with the private sector to harness the transformative power of market forces for the benefit of disadvantaged people globally.

 

UNDP has a private sector portfolio consisting of 530 programmes in more than 100 countries, and it spearheads initiatives to grow sustainable business and inclusive markets, as well as to promote corporate social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
