UNDP is working with the Government of Pakistan, civil society, national partners and the people of Pakistan to help find solutions to persistent development challenges.
We work to build lasting institutional capacity, provide technical expertise to improve development outcomes, and help link the Government and people of Pakistan to innovative global solutions in areas such as improved data quality and collection, better environmental management, climate change finance and adaptation, strong and accountable governance mechanisms and capacities to respond effectively to conflict and disasters.

In 2021, UNDP continued its long-standing partnership with Pakistan to achieve its development goals and to ensure that no one is left behind.
The Strategic Plan 2022-2025 describes how UNDP intends to work together with our partners to deliver what’s required of us in these extraordinary times. This bold, ambitious Plan is structured around “3x6x3” – 3 directions of change, 6 signature solutions and 3 enablers – a clear framework for where we need to head. Over the next four years, we will work with countries to expand people’s choices for a fairer, sustainable future. Helping to get us back on track to deliver on the SDGs.
Pakistan National Human Development Report on Inequality
UNDP launched its third Pakistan National Human Development Report 2020, entitled ‘The three Ps of inequality: Power, People, and Policy’, authored by Dr. Hafiz Pasha.
The report highlights why studying inequality is important for Pakistan, and how this issue has affected the country’s economic and social progress. It discusses how, despite the Constitution of Pakistan upholding equality and despite global commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals, there appear to be two different Pakistans – one for the rich, with access to the best avenues and opportunities, and one for the poor, who have a narrow pool of choices.
