Mission and objectives

UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. It helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience to sustain development results. Present in Guinea-Bissau since the signature of the Cooperation Agreement with the Government of Guinea-Bissau on 29 June, 1975, immediately after the independence, UNDP focuses its interventions in the country in the support to democratic governance, sustainable, inclusive and resilient development, working for a future that offers equality, dignity and opportunities for all following the commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UNDP is partnering with the Government of Guinea-Bissau, local and international NGOs, the sister UN agencies, Civil Society Organizations, private sector and local communities to identify local solutions to face global and national development challenges through access to methodology, knowledge sharing, consulting and wide network of technical international cooperation.


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a leading global organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development and eradicating poverty. Its mission is to work with countries to address pressing challenges, foster inclusive growth, protect the environment, and ensure that all people can lead dignified lives. UNDP operates in nearly every country, working in partnership with governments, civil society organizations, and the private sector to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With a presence in over 170 countries and territories, UNDP leverages its expertise, resources, and networks to facilitate positive change in the following key areas: Poverty reduction, gender equality, climate action, democratic governance, innovation and technologies, crisis response and among other areas. The UNDP has maintained its presence in Guinea-Bissau since June 29, 1975, when it signed a Cooperation Agreement with the Government of Guinea-Bissau shortly after the country gained independence. Over the years, numerous collaborative initiatives with the government and civil society organizations have been carried out in Guinea-Bissau, all aimed at fostering sustainable development, strengthening democratic governance, and fostering economic growth within the country. This assignment is part of UNDP’s project Building Forward Better in Guinea-Bissau. The ‘Building Better from Here On in Guinea-Bissau – Guinea Bissau 2030 Strategic Vision’ project seeks to generate and use cutting-edge research and knowledge resources to develop better development strategies, coordinate allocation of development finance and, through an operational Partnership for Development Framework (DPF), strengthen institutional capacities to attract public and private as well as internal and external resources. This will be achieved through the implementation of an Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF), including a Development Financing Assessment (DFA) process and pursuant Financing Strategy, that would have a transformative effect on the planning and implementation of development programs, allowing a strategic and efficient use of available financial resources, better targeting of interventions, and effective monitoring/evaluation of development programs and their resource allocations by the Government, international partners and the private sector.
