Partnerships lie at the centre of UNDP’s work. UNDP Albania actively promotes a range of development partnerships with all stakeholders, both national and international, working together in all phases of the development chain from programme design, through implementation, review and revision, to impact assessment and the formulation of new interventions.
The Government of Albania is UNDP’s lead partner and client. UNDP supports the Government and people of Albania through implementation of initiatives that translate UN and EU norms and principles into day to day lives of the men and women of Albania.
Government and Institutions
UNDP also partners with local government units across the country.
UNDP also works with civil society including NGOs, community-based organizations, members of academia, and representatives of Albanian media.
The private sector can make an important contribution to development by fostering innovation, providing funding and promoting entrepreneurship. Through many of its programmes, UNDP engages the private sector in support of public-private partnerships.
