About UNDP in Eritrea

UNDP is the UN development agency that is charged with helping countries achieve the simultaneous eradication of extreme poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion using a sustainable human development approach. To this end UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone

In Eritrea, UNDP has been an important sustainable development partner and champion of for more than forty years.  However, its accredited country office activities started with a Liaison Office in March 1992. After a successful UN supervised referendum in 1993, the Liaison Office was upgraded into a fully-fledged country office in January 1994.

Today's development challenges are complex and each context is different. That's why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.
