What We Do
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, working in some 170 countries and territories. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, we are committed to helping the country through strengthened national and local capacities to carry out political, economic and social reforms and development. UNDP annually spends nearly USD 30 million in BIH through its four key focus areas: Justice and Security, Social Inclusion and Democratic Governance, Rural and Regional Development, and Energy and Environment. Additionally, UNDP is the custodian of the Resident Coordinator system, thereby collaborating closely with other UN Agencies which account for a further USD 20 million in programme spending.
Since 1996, UNDP has been supporting the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina in moving from post-conflict recovery towards sustainable development. Our goal is the sustainable, democratic and peaceful development of BIH within current borders, where social, economic and environmental aspects of development coexist in harmony, augmenting the quality of life equitably for all BIH citizens.more
