UNDP works in some 170 countries and territories, 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 to sustain development results. Inclusive growth, better services, environmental sustainability, good governance, and security are fundamental to development progress. We offer our expertise in development thinking and practice, and our decades of experience at country level, to support countries to meet their development aspirations and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to bring the voices of the world’s peoples into deliberations. UNDP works to integrate issues of climate change, disaster risk and energy at the country level, and focuses on building resilience and ensuring that development remains risk-informed and sustainable. UNDP’s disaster risk reduction efforts aim to risk-inform development in line with the goals and targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030).
