The world is undergoing rapid transitions. The African Continent has seen tremendous changes over the last two decades. In particular, sub-Saharan Africa has witnessed economic growth since the mid-1990s.
These changes call for a much more diverse range of support modalities for countries in transition. UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, drive, and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. We are on the ground in 177 countries including Tanzania where we have been supporting the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania since 1968 to improve the lives of people through three main areas of sustainable development, inclusive and effective democratic governance and resilience building.
Within the framework of the UN Delivering as One in Tanzania, UNDP has worked closely with the government, other UN agencies, bilateral donors and lending institutions to ensure support is channeled transparently into priorities to stimulate economic growth. Read more
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 some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP has been supporting the Nepalese people in their struggle against poverty since it opened an in-country office in 1963.
