What is the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)?

"The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) is the UN's principal provider of development advice, advocacy and grant support. It is regarded as a partner rather than an adversary, and its commitment to a universal presence has proven especially useful in post-conflict situations and with states that had been otherwise isolated from the international community."  

Topic A: Climate change-resilient infrastructure development and sustainability
    
The UNDP Committee focuses on issues relating to climate change-resilient infrastructure development and sustainability. Delegates assigned to the UNDP Committee should be prepared to discuss issues pertaining to road, power (including alternative energy resource development), water, gas, housing, communication, healthcare or waste management systems in the Asia-Pacific region. Delegates are requested to identify problems related to such issues and propose practical solutions to the problems. Delegates should acquire enough background information to be able to critique resolutions presented to the committee.


Topic B: Millennium Development Goal: Developing Global Partnership for Development

The UNDP Committee also focuses on millennium goals, such as Global Partnership for Development. Delegates assigned to the UNDP Committee should be prepared to discuss issues such as, but not limited to, types of humanitarian aid and fiscal constraints faced by donor countries. Delegates are asked to identify and propose practical solutions to the issues identified. Delegates should also be able to debate and critique resolutions presented to the committee.
