Who to Contact

The Innovations and Development Alliances Group in UNDP Headquarters in New York is responsible for setting UNDP’s strategic direction on policies that relate to private sector development, as well as guidelines and rules under which UNDP can engage with private sector.

Country Offices carry out most of the private sector development activities on the ground. In addition to working closely with host governments and representatives of business and civil society, the Country Offices house most of UNDP human and financial resources. They are vast repositories of development knowledge, expertise and networks. Many Country Offices have dedicated officers responsible for outreach and partnering with the private sector.
Regional Bureaus and Regional Centres support Country Office activities in five geographically defined regions (see below). They support Country Offices in policy advice in UNDP practice areas, manage regional programmes (conducted in at least three countries) and collect and spread good practice and information throughout the region.
