About us

Who are the decision makers?

The UNDP Resident Representative acts on behalf of the UNDP Administrator, and is the head of the country office being ultimately responsible for the quality and sustainability of UNDP interventions, including UNDP policies and procedures.

Within the framework of the UNDP Country Programme Document 2016-2020, UNDP Maldives works in partnership with the Government of Maldives and associated ministries to prepare a number of programmes and projects that support development interventions. As the government coordinating agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs guides the implementation of the programme and coordinates the cross-sectoral linkages, to support national ownership and accountability.

In addition to government of Maldives, UNDP also maintains strong partnerships with:

  • Civil Society, Non-Governmental Organisations and Community-based Organisations
  • Bilateral and Multi-lateral Partners
  • Private Sector
  • The UN Country Team
