Mission and objectives

UNDP Malaysia is committed to assist Malaysia and its people in establishing sustainable pathways to development and achieving its ambition of becoming a developed nation. We support efforts towards the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. Globally, UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas: • Sustainable development • Democratic governance and peacebuilding • Climate and disaster resilience In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.


UNDP provides policy and technical advisory support to the Government of Malaysia in accordance with the current Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) as approved by the Cabinet. The current Country Programme Action Plan, now extended to 2023 is aligned to the development priorities of the 11th Malaysia Plan with sustainable human development agenda at the forefront, underpinned by three priority areas: (a) inclusive development and growth; (b) sustainable and resilient development; and (c) governance. UNDP Malaysia is transitioning into a new CPAP aligned with the 12th Malaysia Plan. UNDP Malaysia is producing a public-facing report, the “Work in Progress” to communicate narratives about UNDP work in the past CPD cycle and link these to Malaysia’s current and future sustainable development needs. The report differs from traditional UNDP reports in that it builds around creative writing and other storytelling tools, supplemented by accessible commentary and analysis. UNDP Malaysia is looking for support to illustrate the narratives—told from the perspective of project partners and beneficiaries—in the report, “Work in Progress.” These illustrations will be used to bring narratives to life and to add dimensions to the story that are better communicated visually. In keeping with the theme of “work in progress,” the illustrations will take the form of unfinished pencil sketches.
