UNDP works closely with donors present in Uzbekistan, including all other UN Agencies, IFIs, bilateral, and multilateral institutions. UNDP is a trusted and reliable partner known for its role of development broker among other development organizations including GFATM (Global Fund to Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis), the European Union, Global Environmental facility and others.
UNDP is a key player advocating for human development in Uzbekistan. The annual Human Development Report, commissioned by UNDP, fosters a debate on key development issues at global and national levels. It provides new measurement tools, innovative analysis and often controversial policy proposals. The global reports’ analytical framework and inclusive approach carry over into regional, national and local Human Development Reports
supported by UNDP.
