Mission Statement

Established in Sudan in 1965, UNDP is the lead development agency in the country. We are empowering people across Sudan to achieve sustainable peace and development. All our development efforts support the implementation of the peace agreements across the country. Whether in Khartoum, Juba, El-Fasher or Kassala, our strategic interventions aim to develop the capacity of institutions, civil society, and communities to help them consolidate peace, prevent more conflicts, and build a better life.

In partnership with national and international development partners, we are promoting an environment that fosters democratic governance, enhances human security, reduces poverty and diseases, empowers women, ensures environmental sustainability, and contributes to achieving the Millennium Development Goals by 2015.

UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners.
