As the United Nations lead agency on international development, UNDP works in 170 countries and territories to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality. UNDP partners with countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities, and to build resilience to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Our work is concentrated in three focus areas: sustainable development, democratic governance and peace building, and climate and disaster resilience.
A member of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), UNDP publishes global annual results to the IATI Registry which is used to improve decisions and accountability. Data hosted by IATI, must meet strict standards to be included in the IATI index.
Data published by aid agencies to the IATI Registry, is rated from ‘Very Good’ to ‘Poor’. Globally, UNDP has remained in the ‘Very Good’ category for 2022 - a level it has maintained for the past five Indexes. It is currently on place 7 globally.
UNDP performed best on the Project Attributes indicators but is also performing highly across all Finance and Budget indicators.
UNDP Resident Representative, Mr. Dirk Wagener said: “UNDP remains committed to the highest standards of accountability and transparency and we will continue to further invest in robust accountability and oversight systems at all levels: globally, regionally, and at country level.”
