UNDP and the UN
UNDP Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific works closely with the regional offices of the other UN agencies, playing a critical role in UN coordination at the regional level.
The UNDP Administrator is the Vice-Chair of the UN Sustainable Development Group, which unites the 40 UN entities that contribute to the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the country level and which collectively constitute the UN development system (UNDS). The UNSDG provides strategic direction and oversight to ensure UNDS entities deliver coherent, effective and efficient support to countries seeking to achieve sustainable development. As UNSDG Vice-Chair, the Administrator convenes the UNSDG Core Group comprised of the Executive Heads of DESA, FAO, ILO, UNDP, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN Women, WFP, WHO and the rotating chairs of the Regional Economic Commissions. UNDP’s integrator mandate serves both as a foundation for a strong UN development system, and as a key provider of integrated services and platforms in support of a coherent UN system approach to the achievement of the SDGs.
