Supporting the UN development system
UNDP is part of the UN development system (UNDS) and works with UN Resident Coordinators, and as a part of UN Country Teams, to support countries achieve the 2030 Agenda. UNDP has a specific role in assisting the Resident Coordinator and UN Country Teams to facilitate more integrated analyses, planning and implementation – to deliver a multidimensional approach to the SDGs.
Ensuring an integrated offer to countries
UNDP’s integrator role involves supporting UN Country Teams to develop Cooperation Frameworks that reflect a multidimensional approach to development. This includes ensuring that the analysis of a country’s development challenges, and the theory of change which underpins the UN’s priorities, consider the relationship between sectors to achieve the SDGs.

Providing operational services to fellow UN entities
As the operational backbone of the UNDS, UNDP also offers services to fellow UN entities in human resources, finance, procurement, ICT, legal affairs, security and other administrative areas. This enables the UN and partners to operate effectively and cost-efficiently in complex operational settings across the globe.
