What We Do
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, working in 177 countries and territories. UNDPs presence in Croatia is governed by a Standard Basic Assistance Agreement with the Government of Croatia. We target a range of developmental needs in Croatia, including improving living conditions and economic opportunities in war-affected, rural and remote areas; promoting energy efficiency and environmental protection; advocating the full social inclusion of people with disabilities, minorities and other vulnerable groups; and enhancing justice and human security.
UNDP's mission is captured in a simple statement: "Leave no one behind." Since Croatia's accession to the EU in 2013, the emphasis of UNDP's efforts is shifting from development projects inside the country to the sharing of Croatia's experience and expertise with other countries.
Projects and Initiatives
The best-known architectural monument in central Vukovar, Radnički dom (Worker's Hall), which was demolished during the 1990s war, is to regain its former splendor under a €1.64 million project funded by the European Union (EU) and the Vukovar Reconstruction and Development Fund.more
