Partnership is at the centre of all aspects of UNDP’s work in Moldova. Our partners include:
UNDP helps the Republic of Moldova attract and use aid effectively. As such, UNDP works with all state institutions, including Parliament, President’s Office, the Judiciary and all ministries and agencies of the Government.
United Nations System
UNDP coordinates the development activities of the United Nations. As such, it plays a central role in UN reform to promote a strong UN development system which is strategically relevant, nimble, ready and able to help deliver sustainable development results.
At the country level, the UNDP Resident Representative also serves as the Resident Coordinator of development activities and chairs the United Nations Country Team. At the global level, UNDP is part of and chairs the United Nations Development Group (UNDG).
Civil Society Organizations
For UNDP, civil society constitutes the full range of formal and informal organizations that are outside the state and market such as social movements, volunteer organizations, non-governmental organizations, and community-based organizations, as well as communities and citizens acting individually and collectively.
UNDP partners with civil society organizations in programme implementation and policy advocacy. In Moldova, we work closely with civil society organizations to support the provision of basic services in the areas of health, education, water supply and sanitation, agriculture extension and social entrepreneurship.
International Development Partners
UNDP cooperates closely with international development partners such as the European Union, Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Russian Federation, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.
We play a central role in the coordination of development partners, for instance serving as focal point for the Monitoring of the Paris Declaration and of the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, and supported the State Chancellery in the development of a modern aid information management system, operational as of 2014. The UN Resident Coordinator chairs the monthly meetings of international development partners.
The private sector can make an important contribution to development by fostering innovation, providing funding and promoting entrepreneurship.
UNDP has supported the establishment and closely cooperated with the National Global Compact Network since 2007 for advancing human development and socially responsible business values in the Republic of Moldova. The joint projects have strongly focused on community development, environmental sustainability and creation of economic opportunities for those vulnerable and marginalized.
The strong partnership with the mobile telephony operators (Orange, Moldcell, Moldtelecom) helped UN Moldova to carry our national post-2015 consultation in an inclusive and innovative manner. This joint work will serve as a basis of future work for the fulfillment of the aspirations of Moldovan people expressed as part of the post-2015 consultations.
Local Public Authorities
UNDP partners with Local Public Authorities (LPAs) to ensure that all community members, in particular vulnerable groups, participate in taking decisions affecting their life and their communities and have equitable access to basic services.
We work closely with the Congress of Local Authorities and the Academy of Public Administration to further strengthen local public authorities and promote the decentralization reform in Moldova.
