UNDP’s technical assistance programmes date from the country’s independence in 1957. In the early years, assistance focused largely on capacity building in technical education and training, as well as health and nutrition. Consistent with this, UNDP supported projects that expanded the physical and social infrastructure, modernised and diversified the agricultural sector, increased manufacturing activities and promoted foreign investments. Up until 1972, UNDP’s involvement was on a project-to-project basis, responsive to sectors and areas of priority as determined by the Government.

UNDP Malaysia is committed to assist Malaysia and its people in establishing sustainable pathways to development and achieving it's ambition of becoming a developed nation by 2020. Over the years, Malaysia's progress has been impressive: the country has achieved or is on track to attaining the MDGs at aggregate level by 2015.   Staying on course with these results, UNDP Malaysia is working towards realising and exceeding the Millennium Development Goals by 2015.  We combine global networks and best practices to indigenous knowledge and experiences to overcome challenges in the areas of:

  • Poverty Reduction and Inclusive Growth
  • Democratic Governance
  • Crisis Prevention and Recovery
  • Environment and Energy for Sustainable Development
  • Women's Empowerment

UNDP Malaysia brings together government agencies and development partners to use aid effectively.  In all our work, we have strong focus on capacity building, human rights and women’s empowerment.
