About UNDP in Viet Nam
On the ground in about 170 countries and territories, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress.
In Viet Nam, the Government and UNDP partnership officially started in 1978. Since then UNDP has been working closely with the Government and other partners to expand the choices for people and ensure that everyone has equal access to opportunities to realize their full potentials. The current Country Programme (2017-2021) contributes to three inter-related outcomes of the One UN Strategic Plan for Viet Nam, aiming to address poverty and inequalities; enhance citizen participation and protection of rights; as well as promote sustainable low- carbon development while strengthening resilience of the targeted groups.
- Outcome 1: Poverty eradication and greater socio-economic equity.
- Outcome 2: Low-carbon, resilience and environmentally sustainable development.
- Outcome 3: Institutional accountability, people’s voice and access to justice.
