UNDP’s work in Viet Nam, delivered under the One Plan 2012-2016, is today building a better future for the country and its citizens, especially the most vulnerable. Our comparative advantages as a global network and the lead coordinating agency of the UN system, place us in a unique position to help Viet Nam overcome emerging challenges to continue its journey on a sustainable development path.

UNDP in Viet Nam works with the Government to build on the significant poverty reduction and socio-economic development successes of the past two decades and meet the emerging challenges Viet Nam today faces as a new lower middle-income country.
