What we do

In Azerbaijan, UNDP brings the best development models of the world in order to maximize the use of “black gold” derived from the oil wealth, to strengthen its “human gold”, to enlarge people’s choices and reduce inequalities. 

UNDP’s work focuses on poverty reduction, good governance and peace-building, climate change and disaster management, as well as economic development. UNDP provides support to governments to integrate the SDGs into their national development plans and policies.
