UNDP is the United Nations' global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners.
Organisations / agencies covered
This data covers 100 % of development flows at UNDP, including cost-sharing projects with partners. Activities marked as global or other may also include global, regional and country programme expenditure not linked to the UNDP Strategic Plan development results framework, in addition to resources for Development Support Services, Evaluation, Human Development Report Office, Special Unit for South-South Cooperation, Office of Development Studies, Economist Programme, and special initiatives.
Timeliness of Data
Initial set of 2010 IATI data was published in November 2011. IATI implementation took a parallel path with IPSAS and achieved full implementation in November 2012 with the publication of 2011 IATI data.
Frequency of publication
Frequency of publication (extra comments)
IATI Data sets were published annually in 2011 and 2012. Starting from 2013, the UNDP moved to quarterly and then to monthly publication.
Units of Aid
UNDP follows a multi-tiered results structure of project-outputs-activities. We will report at the Output level. A UNDP project can have several outputs, and each output can have multiple activities. Income and expenditure are tracked at the output level.
Segmentation of Published Data
Initially, data was published in a single file for 2010. Starting from 2011 data, UNDP will publish separate files for each country and one global file for all developing activities that are coordinated in HQs and Regional Centers, and not related with a specific location.
