Our corporate context defines the work of the UNDP Fiji Multi-Country Office as a component of the UN’s global development network, which advocates for change and connects countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. The UNDP Fiji Multi-Country Office is part of the 177-country office UNDP network, working with countries to assist the implementation of their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the tools, skills and expertise of UNDP and our wide range of partners.

UNDP joins UNICEF, UNFPA and UN Women to form the Joint Presence initiative, working together on programmes in selected countries - Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

UNICEF leads in Kiribati and Vanuatu, UNFPA is the lead agency in the Marshall Islands and Federated States of Micronesia, and UN Women in Nauru.
