About us

UNDP Malawi has been present in the country since 1964 and works closely with the Government of Malawi, civil society, the private sector, and other partners to contribute to national development strategy.

UNDP works in 170 countries and territories to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress. As the UN’s development agency, UNDP plays a critical role in helping countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

To meet the objectives of the Strategic Plan in line with the 2030 Agenda, UNDP is implementing six cross-cutting approaches to development, known as Signature Solutions. A strong, integrated way of putting our best work, or 'distinctive' skill set, to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

UNDP Country Office in Malawi has two portfolios namely, Responsive Institutions and Citizen Engagement (RICE) and Resilience and Sustainable Growth (RSG), both working within the six Signature Solutions to help deliver the 2030 agenda -

  • Keeping people out of POVERTY
  • GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies
  • Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE
  • ENVIRONMENT: nature-based solutions for development
  • Clean, affordable ENERGY
  • Women’s empowerment and GENDER equality
