Strategic initiatives

We are #NextGenUNDP


#NextGenUNDP is powering progress towards the SDGs with our groundbreaking Human Development Report, speeding up results through our network of Accelerator Labs and unlocking the enormous potential of data to uncover solutions to our most pressing challenges. We understand finance, and how to align public and private investors with the Global Goals. We are improving our business model, harnessing the power of digital, and using our Global Policy Network of 17,000 minds in 50 countries to build integrated solutions that are moving us towards the 2030 Agenda.

UNDP adapts to the range of country contexts in which we work through three broad responsive development settings which are tailored to and within countries. Our six signature solutions define the core work of UNDP.

We deliver through country support platforms for the Sustainable Development Goals, and expert global development advisory services.

A better workplace means better results, so we are pushing the boundaries to improve our business model, to balance our books, increase efficiency, go digital, and invest in our people for a more innovative, effective, efficient #NextGenUNDP.
