UNDP response and strategies

UNDP started its operations in China in September 1979 with the signing of the UNDPGoC Standard Basic Agreement. Since then, UNDP has completed more than 900 projects and extended assistance across a wide variety of fields including agriculture, natural resources management, urban environment management, industry, renewable energy, energy efficiency, climate change adaptation, public health, poverty alleviation and economic restructuring. Beginning in 1982, UNDP developed and implemented multi-year country programmes and cooperation frameworks with specific thematic and result focuses. Since then, UNDP has completed five such frameworks in close collaboration with its government partner, CICETE, under the Ministry of Commerce. There has been a shift in the nature of programming between UNDP and GoC from being a development-assistance programme in the initial years to becoming a development cooperation programme in more recent years.
