The UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji is responsible for the merged functions for UNDP country programming in the ten countries, which was covered by the Fiji-based Multi-Country Office, and regional programming and provision of technical advisory services by the Pacific Centre to the 15 Pacific countries, including those covered by the Samoa based Multi-Country office and the PNG Country Office. The UNDP Solomon Islands Office, now headed by a Country Manager, remains the same with stronger technical and operational connections with the UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji.

The UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji has three revitalized clusters: Resilience and Sustainable Development, Effective Governance and Inclusive Growth. The new clusters comprise both regional and country programme portfolios, to promote linkages and improve programme coherence. The Integrated Results Management Team strengthens the Monitoring and Evaluation, Programme Quality Assurance and Communications. The Joint Operations Centre provides business support to not only UNDP but also to some UN agencies in and outside the Pacific, accelerating effectiveness and efficiency of services by maximising the economy of scale.
