Our mission

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 as they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners.

Based in the middle of Europe, the UNDP Office in Geneva contributes to UNDP’s mission through serving as the UNDP Platform for Geneva and the Geneva-based organizations and as the primary point of contact with the governments of France and Switzerland.

UNDP Geneva contribution to sustainable finance

UNDP Geneva advances UNDP’s mission of assisting countries in aligning private sector activities and investments with the 2030 Agenda, focusing on the role of Switzerland and International Geneva as a critical hub for the growth of the sustainable finance and for the potential of unlocking private capital for the SDGs. It does so by working around two core focus areas:

  •  Growth Stage Impact Ventures (GSIV) programme: identifying pipelines of investable enterprises at the country level and connecting them to domestic and international capital
  •  Building Bridges Week: facilitating dialogue and partnerships with the Swiss and European finance ecosystem
