What We Do

UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries and territories, including Kyrgyzstan, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.

Our Goals

We want to accelerate pro-poor development, good governance and environmental sustainability in Kyrgyzstan in partnership with government, civil society, mass media, the UN system, private sector and donors. Another priority is raising awareness of and capacity in cross-cutting themes such as conflict prevention, disaster risk reduction, gender equality and respect for human rights. As part of the bigger UN family, we want to ensure that the UN system is perceived as a single effective team in Kyrgyzstan even while we (UNDP) respect and understand the diversity of the mandates that the members of the UN Country Team represent.
