Who is the decision maker?
Mr. Nick Beresford, Resident Representative
The Resident Representative is the most senior official for UNDP in Cambodia and also serves as the Resident Coordinator for the entire United Nations system in the country. The Resident Representative is ultimately accountable for the quality and sustainability of UNDP interventions in the country and for ensuring that all UNDP policies and procedures are fully complied with. The UNDP Country Director is the second most senior official and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the organization.
UNDP works in partnership with the Royal Government of Cambodia, non-government organizations, civil society organizations, community-based organizations, multilateral aid agencies, bilateral donors and private sectors. A vast majority of its development assistance is implemented by national entities such as the Council for Development of Cambodia, Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority, National Council for Sustainable Development and ministries. UNDP makes the most of its human development approach and knowledge to articulate its programme, develop new initiatives and exploit the opportunity to engage the Government at the policy level toward outcomes and impact, departing from a project-oriented approach. UNDP is now focusing on upgrading value chains, financing development sustainably, building resilience and fostering voice and participation. The overarching aim of UNDP is to support the progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
