What We Do
In its Global Cooperation Framework, UNDP provides a range of services to governments and to United Nations country teams in the areas of Democratic Governance, Poverty Reduction Strategies, Crisis Prevention and Recovery, Environment and Sustainable Energy, HIV/AIDS. These are geared to engage in global advocacy and analysis to generate knowledge, alliance building and promotion of enabling frameworks on key issues, policy advice and support for national capacity building, and knowledge networking and sharing of good practices.
UNDP Saudi Arabia, inline with the Kingdom’s development priorities aligns its work along a selected number of service lines. The areas addressed are tailored to meet some of the challenges raised in the Ninth Development Plan. UNDP’s focus in Saudi Arabia has, in recent years, shifted from assistance in infrastructure to a softer assistance in terms of implementation of strategies and planning, e-government, energy efficiency, environmental conservation and the accession to World Trade Organization (WTO).
