in the DPRK
UNDP works as part of a matrix of organizations. We are one of only a handful of United Nations and multilateral agencies with a presence in the DPRK and work with many partners in the UN system.
UNDP’s objective is to optimize our use of resources and enhance our collective impact. Some of the UN organizations working in the country reside in the DPRK; some do not. The Office of the UN Resident Coordinator* serves as the Leader of the UN Country Team, harmonizing the work of the UN organizations both resident (FAO, UNFPA, UNICEF, WFP and WHO) and non-resident (ESCAP, OCHA, UNEP, UNESCO, UNIDO, UNOPS and others).
*The UN Resident Coordinator’s additional titles and responsibilities include: UNDP Resident Representative; UNFPA Resident Representative.
