The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) derives its mission from Article 55 of the United Nations Charter (1945), which states the organization's responsibility to promote "higher standards of living, full employment, and conditions of economic and social progress and development." As the primary United Nations agency focusing on sustainable development, UNDP aids Member States in realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and executing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda). The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a specialized arm of the United Nations designed to assist developing countries by addressing three key priorities: eliminating poverty in all its forms, promoting constitutional changes to achieve sustainable development, and enhancing resilience to crises since its inception in 1965.

Operating in more than 170 nations, the UNDP collaborates extensively with governments, civil society, and the private sector to address urgent issues like inequality, climate change, and gender empowerment. The organization offers technical know-how, resources, and policy guidance to assist countries in reaching their development objectives. As mentioning the SDG plannings, the UNDP plays a crucial role in providing both social and financial support to governments and local authorities, facilitating the seamless integration of SDGs into their national development plans.
