Overview

What we do

UNDP Turkey works for progress in three core areas: Capacity building for democratic governance; action and advocacy for poverty reduction; and environment and sustainable development. In addition to these core areas, UNDP Turkey is emphasizing the role of women, private sector, capacity development, and information and communication technology in its policies and programmes. To achieve progress in these areas, UNDP seeks to establish partnerships with the central government, local administrations, civil society, academia and private sector to strengthen its contribution to Turkey's development.

Our Goals

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 177 countries and territories, including Turkey, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.

Promoting gender in development

We recognize gender as a cross cutting issue that should be mainstreamed in all programmatic areas of interventions. As a result of UNDP’s work towards the promotion of gender equality in Turkey UNDP's contributions have been recognized by the Turkish Government, NGOs, academia, and beneficiaries.
