Background

CORPORATE BACKGROUND:

UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.

UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, which will guide global development priorities through 2030. The key 2030 Agenda principle of leaving no one behind and stamping out inequality is at the core of everything we do.

UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas:

  • Sustainable development
  • Democratic governance and peacebuilding
  • Climate and disaster resilience

In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.

 

INTERNSHIP OFFICE BACKGROUND:

The Human Mobility Team at Bangkok Regional Hub works across the region to harness the contribution of migrants, IDPs, refugees and other people on the move for sustainable development, while ensuring they are empowered, supported, and protected.  The team works to support UNDP country offices and through a flagship regional initiative called Inclusion for Development (I4D) to deliver solutions for people on the move.  The team implements UNSP’s components of the ILO-IOM-UNDP Ship to Shore Rights Programme, focusing on addressing migrant exploitation and human trafficking in the Greater Mekong Subregion.
