UNDP and Viet Nam sign 5-year action plan
Ha Noi – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of Viet Nam announced their five-year programme plan today at a signing ceremony in Ha Noi.According to Dr. Cao Viet Sinh, Vice Minister of Ministry of Planning and Investment, the jointly-prepared plan reflects the desire of UNDP and Viet Nam to ensure its effective and successful implementation will contribute to deepening the reform process in Viet Nam and achieving the targets set out in the 10-year socio-economic strategy and five-year plan, as well as those set out in the Viet Nam Development Goals and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
UNDP’s Country Programme Document (CPD) and the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) provide a framework for cooperation between the Government of Viet Nam and UNDP over the next five years and support the country’s efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The two documents, which form part of the normal UNDP planning process, take their lead from Viet Nam’s five-year Socio-Economic Development Plan 2006-2010 and other national development priorities. .
“Government agencies contributed a great deal to the preparation of the CPD and CPAP for 2006-2010, demonstrating a strong sense of national ownership and commitment,” said Acting UNDP Resident Representative, Subinay Nandy. “This is yet more proof of Viet Nam’s ownership and commitment to effectively use the resources UNDP provides. And with the further harmonization of the UN family, our work here will be more effective, efficient and more responsive to the needs of the people of Viet Nam.”
The CPD and CPAP use the same guidelines, format and five-year cycles as other UN Agencies in Viet Nam, like UNICEF and UNFPA. This integration is an integral part of the United Nations’ global and country-level reform agenda. In Viet Nam, where UN harmonization efforts have gained momentum, the design and implementation of such plans are expected to reinforce the realization of the “One United Nations” initiative that has been jointly launched by the United Nations and the Government.
The Government of Viet Nam is a world leader in aid effectiveness and United Nations reform, and has encouraged the United Nations agencies in Viet Nam to achieve greater synergies and efficiencies in their programmes and operations.
According to the CPD, UNDP will continue to provide technical assistance and policy advice in poverty reduction, democratic governance and in cross-cutting themes like HIV/AIDS, gender equality, youth and decentralization, as well as in joint programmes with other members of the UN family in Viet Nam. The CPAP is a much more detailed planning tool identifying targets and key national partners that UNDP will work with in achieving these goals.
has enjoyed a relationship of trust for over 30 years with the
Government and people of Viet Nam,” said Mr. Nandy. “This plan provides a
flexible framework that will enable the Government and UNDP to respond
to emerging needs and priorities.”

- One in two families that we worked with in 2015 did not have access to clean drinking water, putting them at risk of contracting water-borne diseases. According to the United Nations Development Programme - UNDP, water-related diseases cost children an estimated 443 million school days each year and kill more people than tuberculosis or malaria. They are also a major contributor to childhood malnutrition. Every child has the right to clean water, and with initiatives like the distribution of water filters, hygiene classes in our Preschool Nutrition Centers, and our WASH Program, we are trying to make that a reality. #WorldWaterWeek 2 hours ago
- Only 5% of women farmers in Uganda have land rights. Joyce, a farmer from Uganda is one of those 5%. Without legal documentation, Joyce almost lost her inherited home and farm to a manufacturing plant. Although she owned her land, denial of access to her own land deed almost led to a land grab and eviction. African women farmers grow 90% of Africa's food but own only on average, 15% of land rights. Worldwide, women own less than 1% of land while they farm and process 60-80% of our food supply.
