United Nations Development Program (UNDP)

Since 1966 UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in more than 170 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

Through partnerships with national and regional and local governments, UNDP strives to support the Ethiopian Government in the efforts to eliminate poverty, developing peoples’ capacity, achieving equitable results, sustain the environment, and advance democratic governance.
