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.

In line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development we work with countries and partners to jointly end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. UNDP supports countries' efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, which guide global development priorities through 2030.

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 national and global development challenges. With our expertise we contribute to the development of Serbia by providing support in four key focus areas:

·      Inclusive and sustainable growth;

·      Building and strengthening of accountable and representative governance institutions serving people;

·      Low-carbon and climate-resilient development; and

·      Gender Equality and lives free of violence;
