What We Do
UNDP is the UN's global development network. We advocate for change and connect the Afghan government, NGOs, civil society and other partners to the knowledge and resources they need to help the Afghan people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries and can draw on 50 years of experience. This leaves us well placed to help our local partners find solutions to national (and global) development challenges.
UNDP's network links and coordinates global and national efforts in Afghanistan to reach these national development priorities. Our focus is helping countries build and share solutions to the challenges of: Democratic Governance, Poverty Reduction, Crisis Prevention and Recovery, Energy and Environment, and Women's Empowerment.
In order to strengthen Afghanistan’s ability to maintain law and order, UNDP and the donor community work closely with the Government of Afghanistan to build and maintain a professional police force and implement the reform priorities of the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MOIA). The latest phase of the LOTFA programme began in July 2015 after a lengthy series of consultations among donors, the Government and UNDP. These led to the design of a radically improved project.
