Mission

UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Our goal: UNDP helps more than 80 countries to strengthen development gains in post-crisis countries by helping governments respond to disasters and mitigate the risk they pose; addressing the underlying causes of violence; reinforcing governance and the rule of law; supporting livelihoods; and by using short-term employment schemes that allow local people to rebuild critical infrastructure following disaster.

Our work: UNDP helps make governments and communities more resilient to crisis by helping them analyze where they are vulnerable, anticipate where conflicts and disasters might occur, and prepare for them so as to mitigate their impact. Within hours of a serious outbreak of conflict or a disaster, UNDP can provide the support required, and coordinate recovery action.
