UNDP-EU partnership: stories from the field

Here you will find stories that illustrate the partnership between UNDP and the Europan Union in the field. Given that our partnership covers 140 countries and spans over a decade, these stories represent just a fraction of what we do together. They are however important as they show what difference our partnership makes in the lives of people. They show how we help empower people and support the building of resilient nations.
