The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) supports the Government and communities to meet the national development goals as well as international commitments. The UNDP CPD 2017-2022 was formulated in consultation with the Government and other stakeholders to support the implementation of the 6th National Economic, Social and Cultural Development Plan (NDP) during 2017 to 2021 which was extended for one year. The extension of the NDP followed by a one-year extension of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and consequently the UNDP Country Programme.
The country programme for 2017-2022 supports the Government in attaining the outcomes of the UNDAF 2017-2022, the 6th Five-Year Development Plan (2016-2020), and the internationally agreed sustainable development goals.
In 2019, the UN and the Government of the Islamic Rep of Iran agreed on a re-priorization of the UNDAF and the CPDs. The framework is the Technical Assistance Package (TAP), which contain three areas of action: Programatic, Operation and South-South.
