UNDP is a sub-organ of the United Nations that is in charge of development of foreign countries. To do so, it connects countries to knowledge, experience and needed resources.
In addition to doing those, the organisation gives expert and technical advise to countries needing to develop their human capacity.
The organisation was founded in 1985 and has been at the forefront of aiding both human, capital, and material investments and cooperation among developing counties.
The UNDP is also central to helping countries with the realisation of their Sustainable Development Goals.
Its function is to a great extent separated from the control of UN, a change that came into effect on Tuesday, January 1.
