The United Nations Development Programme 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 177 countries and territories, we offer
global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
In Iraq, UNDP has been present since 1976, focusing its efforts on democratic governance,
poverty reduction, crisis prevention and recovery, gender equality, women’s empowerment,
environment and sustainable development.
