About us

UNDP in the Republic of Serbia

Who we are

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works in nearly 170 countries and territories, including the Republic of Serbia, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion.

We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.

What we do

UNDP’s work in Serbia is guided by its Country Programme Document (2016-2020), and the UN-Serbia Development Partnership Framework for 2016-2020, which is in line with the priorities of the Government of Serbia. UNDP assists Serbia to meet its international obligations and requirements for the European Union accession.

UNDP works in partnership with the Government of Serbia, development partners, UN agencies, civil society and local communities to help identify local solutions to meet global and national development challenges through a range of interventions that combine UNDP’s expertise and comparative advantage in four key focus areas:

·      Inclusive and sustainable growth;

·      Accountable and representative governance institutions serving people;

·      Low-carbon and climate-resilient development; and

·      Equal participation for women and lives free of violence;

The overarching objective of our programme is to help accelerate the implementation and achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), presenting a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
