What We Do

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 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.more

Our Goals

Our overarching goal is to translate principles of the UN and the EU into daily practice of the institutions of Albania, and into social, economic, political and cultural opportunities for men and women in Albania to live knowledgeable, healthy and prosperous lives. In short, our work is sustainable human development. We do this by policy, program and project based partnerships with the people and institutions of Albania across sectors and all social levels. Our work is clustered in three mutually interlinked programming areas: Democratic Governance and Rule of Law; Economic and Social Inclusion; Regional Development and Environmental Sustainability.
