United Nations Development PRogramme (UNDP) is the UN’s Global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners.

In the Philippines, UNDP fosters human development for peace and prosperity. Working with central and local Governments as well as civil society, and building on global best practices, UNDP strengthens capacities of women, men and institutions to empower them to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and the objectives of the Philippine Mid-term Development Plan 2011-2016. Through advocacy and development projects, with a special focus on vulnerable groups, UNDP contributes to poverty reduction, promoting democratic governance, fostering environmental sustainability, addressing climate change and natural disasters, strengthening peace and conflict prevention, to ensure a better life for the people of the Philippines.
