About us

As the United Nations lead agency on international development, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works in 170 countries and territories to eradication and reduce inequalities. In Ghana, working across the 16 regions, UNDP works within the framework of the Government-UN Sustainable Development Partnership (UNSDP), which responds to Ghana’s development priorities and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for People, Prosperity, Planet, Peace and Partnerships by 2030.  UNDP contributes to the achievement of Ghana’s Coordinated Programme of Economic and Social Development Policies (2017-2024) and the Ghana Beyond Aid Charter towards Ghana@100 (2057). UNDP in Ghana focuses its development interventions on three main programme areas.
