The work of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Afghanistan for more than 50 years of peace and conflict has focused on building resilience for the country’s institutions through projects that empower and strengthen Afghan institutions at national, provincial and local levels.

During the last 10 years since the 2001 Bonn Conference, UNDP’s role has gradually moved from early recovery through reconstruction to a broader development approach, encompassing strategic actions to strengthen democratic institutions and support implementation of public services.


  • Since 2002, UNDP has helped complete more than 2,300 rural infrastructure projects, benefiting over 14 million Afghans.
  • UNDP supported building of 45 clinics and maternity wards, provision of classrooms for thousands of students in more than 80 schools and access to safe drinking water for 1.6 million people.
