Our Donors and Partners

donor contributions

UNDP’s development work and its support to South Sudan, puts partnership at the heart of our work. A great deal of UNDP’s innovative programming and critical development work is made possible thanks to the generosity, commitment and resolve of our donors and partner institutions.

UNDP is a proud supporter of government officials and agencies, who are taking the lead in building a peaceful and prosperous South Sudan. The funding UNDP receives from its donors is channelled directly towards programming that strengthens the capacity of national bodies to manage the peace and development process. The proposed funding for the 2011 programme is approximately US$170 million.

UNDP’s donors – Canada, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK to name just a few – do not only contribute financially; they are an integral part of the decision-making process. UNDP works directly with its national and international partners on all aspects of project formulation, implementation and monitoring.

Regular project board meetings, an Inter-Ministerial Approval Committee and annual reviews of UNDP’s South Sudan programme ensure that all our partners are engaged with projects and able to evaluate UNDP’s activities and achievements across various sectors.

UNDP also works in close partnership with other United Nations agencies. Our UN Joint Programmes include:

Conflict Prevention and Peace-Building:   UNDP, UNICEF, IOM, ILO, FAO, WHO, UNFPA, and UN Women


UNDP also works with the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) on project implementation, recently through the United Nations Integrated Referendum and Electoral Division (UNIRED), and also with UN Police (UNPOL), the UN Mine Action Office (UNMAO) and the UNMIS Divisions for Rule of Law, Human Rights, and Civil Affairs.
