About Us

UNDP is the United Nations Development Programme, and operates in nearly 170 countries and territories around the world. 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.

UNDP was founded in 1965 and its Headquarters is located in New York. UNDP has had a representative office in Iran since 1966 and has – during all this time – worked closely with its major development partners – the Government, local councils, civil society, academic institutions, and the private sector – to promote sustainable human development in the country.
