UNDP Brussels

About us

Our mission

The European Union (EU) and UNDP are natural partners, sharing the same values and objectives for advancing peace and security, human rights and development. We are both committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to supporting countries’ progress and investing in their efforts to end poverty, protect the planet and build prosperity for all.

Located in the heart of Europe, the Representation Office in Brussels positions UNDP as European Union’s partner of choice towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals by :

  • Influencing the policy development and fostering partnerships to make the 2030 Agenda a reality;
  • Mobilizing resources towards UNDP’s Strategic Plan and its key thematic areas;
  • Promoting and communicating UNDP's partnership with the EU;
  • Supporting UNDP Country Offices to foster the partnership with the EU;
  • Leading the UN Brussels Team in its interaction with the EU, and providing operational support to UN presence in Brussels.


We work closely with institutions of the European Union - the European Commission, the European Parliament, the EU Council and the European External Action Service, as well as partners such as the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, civil society and think tanks.
