UNDP in Nigeria

Who we are

UNDP is the United Nations largest agency with a mandate to erradicate poverty, through sustainable and inclusive human development. UNDP has been in Nigeria since the country became independent in 1960 providing capacity building and policy development support to the Federal Government of Nigeria in areas of Governance & Peace Building, Inclusive growth and Sustainable Development.

What we do

UNDP continues to support, the government in the implementation of development intervantions aimed at meeting the medium to long term goals enshrined the; Economic Recovery and Growth Plan 2017-2020; National Vision 2020 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030.

What do we want to accomplish?

The ultimate goal of UNDP is to improve the lives of the people of Nigeria, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, and to ensure a future that offers equality, dignity and opportunity for all. UNDP works in partnership with the federal Government of Nigeria, development partners, UN agencies, civil society and local communities to help identify local solutions to meet global and national development challenges through a range of interventions that combine UNDP’s expertise and comparative advantage in the areas of Governance & Peace Building, Inclusive growth and Sustainable Development.

What are our results?

Every year, we document the achievements made by the Government of Nigeria and the strides the country is making in making poverty a thing of the past, reducing inequality, safegaurding the environment and strengthening democratic governance. Our accomplishments are reflected in efficient delivery of development results for the betterment of Nigerians.

Our focus

Next generation UNDP

Today’s development challenges are complex and each context is different. That’s why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.

UNDP’s Strategic Plan (2018-2021) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts: eradicating poverty; structural transformations; and building resilience.


Three development settings

Eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions
Accelerate structural transformations
Build resilience to shocks and crises

To respond to these issues, and better focus its resources and expertise to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, UNDP has identified a set of approaches that we call our Signature Solutions.

Six Signature Solutions


Signature Solutions are integrated responses to development against which we align our resources and expertise, to make real impact.


Keeping people out of POVERTY


GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies


Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE


ENVIRONMENT: nature-based solutions for development

Clean, affordable ENERGY

Women’s empowerment and GENDERequality


Each Solution includes a mix of policy advice, technical assistance, finance, and programmes. Each solution has the potential to unlock the path to sustainable development. But no one solution will succeed on its own. We need all of them to achieve the SDGs.



Our work


As we implement our new plan for a new era, see how we’ve been building on our strengths and presence on the ground in close to 170 countries and territories during more than five decades of action.
