What We Do
UNDP works in more than 177 countries and territories, offering global perspective and local insights to help empower lives and build resilient nations. UNDP assists Uzbekistan in addressing many critical development issues, from combating environmental degradation, stopping and reversing the HIV/AIDS pandemic, promoting good, inclusive governance, and supporting sustainable economic development.
Uzbekistan has achieved significant growth since the mid-2000s, despite the global financial crisis, and in 2010 it was reclassified as a lower middle income country. During Uzbekistan’s development, UNDP has remained an important partner of the national Government, private sector, NGOs and civil society, providing policy advice and technical assistance. Within the current UN Development Assistance Framework for 2016-2020, UNDP continues to further expand its current activities, advocates for the Sustainable Development Goals, and coordinate donor activities.
