UNITED NATIONS development programme

The United Nations Development Programme works particularly with developing countries to help facilitate sustainable and equitable development. With operations in 177 countries and territories, it is one of the most ubiquitous of UN organizations and has proved itself to be among the most successful. Since 2015, the UNDP has focused on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of 17 goals constituting “a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity”.

This committee is designed for both beginners and experienced delegates alike. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, delegates who wish to be considered for an award must submit their position papers by Sunday, January 13, 2019, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.
