Our Projects

UNDP projects are designed in partnership with and based on inputs from national stakeholders and contribute directly to the national priorities of Iran, the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and the UNDP Country Programme Document . Projects focus on diverse programme areas such as Resilient Economy, Environmentally Sustainable Development and Health and Development.

UNDP projects are largely nationally executed and all of them are implemented by national partners.


1. Health and Development

2. Environmentally Sustainable Development

  • Conservation of Biodiversity in Central Zagros Landscapes

    The project aims to establish a novel type of collaborative conservation system in which all stakeholder groups are fully engaged in planning, implementing and monitoring of resource management planning to ensure the protection and sustainability of use and exploitation of all biodiversity, renewable natural resources and ecological processes.

  • Conservation of Asiatic cheetah (CACP)- Phase II

    The CACP is a long standing initiative between Iran’s Department of Environment, UNDP and a number of committed international partners, namely the Wildlife Conservation Society, Panthera, Cheetah Conservation Fund and IUCN’s Cat Specialist Group.

  • Conservation Of Iranian Wetlands Project - Phase II (Scale-up)

    The scale-up phase of the CIWP runs from 1 May 2013 to 31 Dec. 2014.
