- Early in 1966, United Nations leaders fighting poverty came together to form United Nations Development Programme - UNDP Since that time, we’ve played a transformational role in eradicating diseases, reducing hunger, creating jobs, empowering women, cutting infant mortality, protecting the environment, and lots more in the nearly 170 countries where we work. On the occasion of our 50th anniversary, UNDP is looking toward the future of people and planet. That future is uncertain. On the one hand, climate change, political turbulence, economic inequality, and other challenges. On the other hand, technological advances, tremendous economic growth, and an unprecedented global consensus about the best way forward. 16 hours ago
