EU - UNDP Partnership
UNDP has a long-standing commitment to transparency, with Country Offices publishing financial, procurement and programme information on respective websites on an annual basis.
Open.undp.org, UNDP's online portal allows open, comprehensive public access to data on
nearly 4,000 active UNDP projects, and publishes over US$5.3 billion in project data. This includes projects financed by the European Union.
In 2017, the Publish What You Fund’s Aid Transparency Index recognized this accomplishment, along with our corporate efforts toward enhancing transparency by ranking UNDP as the second most transparent aid organization in the world, making it the highest rated UN organization.
Institutional effectiveness is central to the transformation that UNDP envisions in its 2014-2017 Strategic Plan. The Plan reduces our strategic goals from 34 to 7 outcomes integral to inclusive, sustainable development, and where we make the greatest contributions. Our aim is a well-orchestrated fit between our global vision and what we do on the ground, even as we remain open and flexible in the face of change, and closely attuned to different contexts.
Shifts in our headquarters and regional business architecture are bringing our staff together to cut through traditional programme “silos,” recognizing the reality that development’s many dimensions interconnect and build on each other. A process of aligning our country programmes maintains their traditional responsiveness to national priorities, while gearing them up to work in new ways—delivering better results, greater focus and increased value for money.
A new integrated results and resources framework is introducing more effective monitoring of how all UNDP offices achieve results and spend resources. To uphold quality assurance and foster organization-wide consistency, it includes core indicators and measurement guidance. UNDP’s first integrated budget has simplified and made more transparent the management of its different revenue streams.
