Overview

What We Do

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 more than 170 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

Our Goals

Thailand’s emergence as a middle-income country (MIC) altered the country’s development context and the nature of Thailand’s development engagement with partners. The past country programme initiated a transition from the traditional donor-recipient relationship between Thailand and UNDP to a new relationship of mutually beneficial partnerships. Along with this transition, UNDP in Thailand has shifted its emphasis to policy support, technical assistance, and knowledge management. In this context there is an importance of linking policy with practice, which has been highlighted by UNDP's experience across all programme areas.
