UNDP and the UN System

The United Nations Development Programme has been in Cambodia for 50 years, operating from 1958 to 1975, resuming in a limited capacity in 1980 contributing to emergency relief operations, and formally establishing its offices in Phnom Penh in 1994 with the signature of the SBAA (hyperlink to be included).

UNDP is one of 27 UN agencies, funds and programmes operating in Cambodia under the umbrella of the UN Resident Coordinator system, which works to ensure that UN activities complement each other and do not overlap. The overarching aim of UNDP’s work is supporting progress towards the Cambodia Millennium Development Goals. All our activities are done in close collaboration with the Government under the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF 2011-2015) outlines the United Nations work across the following five areas of national priority:

  • By 2015, more people living in Cambodia benefit from, and participate in, increasingly equitable, green, diversified economic growth
  • By 2015, more men, women, children and young people enjoy equitable access to health and education
  • By 2015, all women, men, girls and boys are experiencing a reduction in gender disparities and progressively enjoying and exercising equal rights
  • By 2015, national and sub-national institutions are more accountable and responsive to the needs and rights of all people living in Cambodia and increase participation in democratic decision-making
  • By 2015, more people, especially the poor and vulnerable, benefit from improved social safety net (SSN) and social security programmes, as an integral part of a sustainable national social protection system
