Our Partners


The work of UNDP Thailand is made possible by the personal, financial, and professional commitments of its international and national partners. UNDP Thailand actively engages in an array of development partnerships with all stakeholders, both national and international, working together in all phases of the development cycle, from programme design, implementation, review and revision, to lessons learned and best practices.

The Royal Thai Government is UNDP’s most important partner. Through its responsibilities to coordinate efforts to reach its Millennium Development Goal targets, UNDP Thailand supports the Royal Thai Government (RTG) in its efforts to improve the lives of the people of Thailand through a participatory process of awareness raising, technical support, policy expertise and coordination and implementation of initiatives that support the RTG's national priorities.

Thailand, as a middle-income country (MIC), is an important part of the developing ASEAN economic community, and an emerging partner in international development assistance in Southeast Asia and worldwide. UNDP works with its partners to assist Thailand in its economic development (such as Creative Economy), meeting MDG and MDG Plus targets, promoting democratic governance and combating global climate change.

UNDP is also active in its engagement with civil society, including NGOs, community-based organizations, Thailand's robust academic community, and national and international media. Through many of its programmes, UNDP also works with the private sector in support of public-private partnerships.

Outreach and cooperation also extend to the international community. This cooperation includes various UN Agenciesas well as donors and other multilateral and bilateral development organizations operating in Thailand. UNDP also enjoys various forms of technical and financial cooperation with international NGOs and foundations.
