United Nations Development Programme

Organisation Acronym: 

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, UNDP offers global perspectives and local insights to help empower lives and build resilient nations.  Agriculture is a strand that runs through much of UNDP’s programmatic work—from the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to poverty reduction to capacity building—and its research.  The 2012 Africa Human Development Report, for example, is about how to promote a food secure continent.  The report can be downloaded free of charge from the UNDP website.  The background papers, a map, and multimedia materials are also available
