What we do

UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.

Working with institutions and authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, UNDP supports economic and social development and resilience to climate change and disasters, helping people and communities recover from crisis and improve their livelihoods since 1996. 

UNDP’s continued commitment is on fighting poverty and inequality, accompanying partners in Bosnia and Herzegovina in their pathways towards the SDGs and working towards the Paris Agreement. We work in Bosnia and Herzegovina to expand people’s choices for a fairer, sustainable future.
