National and Local Government:

The government is firmly at the centre of all consultations on UNDP’s role in Afghanistan, as well as ongoing discussions to identify government needs, gaps in programming and ways to ensure that UNDP's interventions are as responsive as possible.

Throughout our portfolio, we work with some 40 government ministries and agencies at the national and sub-national levels.


Our work depends on support from bilateral donors and international financial institutions, with whom we consult widely on both country-level strategy and project-level outcomes while providing the highest degree of accountability in our monitoring, evaluating and reporting of finances and results.


NGOs and CSOs play a key role in many of our programmes, particularly community-level activities and mobilization. For example, we work CSOs to monitor progress toward the SDGs, service delivery and democratic governance, and with media organisations to raise awareness of development issues.

The UNDP network

Our global network allows us to draw on expertise in poverty reduction, democratic governance, gender equality, environmental sustainability, capacity development, crisis prevention and recovery, and South-South Cooperation.

This includes the wealth of knowledge and resources in UNDP’s Regional Service Centres as well as HQ units such the Bureaus for Crisis Prevention and Recovery, Development Policy and Partnerships.

UNDP also continues to work closely with national and international United Nations Volunteers in the implementation of its projects.

UN Country Team

All of UNDP’s work is carried out in coordination with other UN Agencies so as to eliminate duplication, cut costs and ensure coherent One UN support for the aims of the Afghanistan National Peace and Development Framework, the National Priority Programmes, and the Afghanistan Sustainable Development Goals.
