Our Partners

A partner of choice 

Partnership is at the heart of everything UNDP does. We offer a nearly universal presence. Our substantial expertise—both intellectual acumen and practical experience—cuts across diverse development issues and settings. These valuable assets combined with our long legacy of trust have made us a global partner of choice. 

Our partners include host governments, donors, the United Nations system, international financial institutions, bilateral agencies, municipalities, the private sector, civil society and the media.

The diversity of donors contributing to our programmes as well as the substantial resources channeled through UNDP programmes confirms once again the vote of confidence of the national government and the international and local community in UNDP’s role and effectiveness in the area of sustainable development.  


Implementation of the new five-year country programme for 2023-2027 will rely on the continued strong partnership with the Government and local authorities, including cost-sharing. A number of UNDP projects are implemented nationally, under the direction of the Government and in partnership with relevant national authorities.

Working with local public authorities, UNDP ensures that all community members, in particular vulnerable groups, participate in taking decisions which affect their life and that of the community, thus linking local needs to the greater national development agenda.

Civil Society

UNDP engages with civil society organizations (CSOs) at all levels to support people in their efforts to build a better life. Substantive partnership with CSOs is of greater strategic importance than ever given the integral role of civil society actors in development. There is growing recognition that engagement with CSOs is critical to national ownership, accountability, good governance, decentralization, democratization of development co-operation, and the quality and relevance of official development programmes.

United Nations System

The Government of Mongolia (GoM) and the United Nations (UN) will be guided by the 2023-2027 United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF).

The UNSDCF was formulated based on multiple consultations with the Government, civil society, private sector and the UN system (represented by resident and non-resident entities).

The Cooperation Framework is closely aligned with the national development agenda as articulated in the Vision 2050 with nine overarching strategic priorities to be implemented in three phases. The UNSDCF also aligns with the country’s international commitments under the 2030 Agenda and international  human rights obligations.  

Building on successful Delivering as One mechanisms and the expertise of United Nations partners, UNDP supports the activities of the United Nations system are well coordinated and complementary.

UNDP will continue engaging private sector for solving public issues through social innovation. To facilitate inclusive market development, UNDP focuses on connecting and integrating local producers with domestic and global markets.

Regional Cooperation

UNDP promotes regional cooperation, aiming for the transfer of technology and skills, beyond knowledge-sharing to lasting partnerships and concrete results that change people’s lives; achievements in promoting innovation, confidence-building and advancing renewable energy use have already been shared through UNDP networks through South-South Cooperation framework.
