Our Partners

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.
