UNDP works globally with the 2030-agenda, responsible governance, crisis prevention and recovery, poverty prevention, climate and access to energy. UNDP’s Nordic Representation Office (NRO) is located at the UN City in Copenhagen. Aside from Denmark, the office covers Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland, and together we work to promote knowledge of UNDP’s work in these central donor countries. The key tasks for the NRO are to manage UNDP’s interests and communicate the organisation’s key results and focus areas.
UNDP’s cooperation with the private sector is a significant component of NRO’s work. The Private Sector Team consists of a few employees and one intern in Copenhagen, and an additional three employees working out of Sweden, Norway, and Finland respectively. The team works strategically to build up partnerships with companies, financial institutions, business networks, and other actors who want to work towards reaching UNDP’s goals and the SDGs.
In January 2018, the office launched the SDG Accelerator for SMEs, a program aimed at accelerating business solutions addressing the SDGs. The programme was piloted in Denmark in 2018 and 2019 with 32 Danish companies. Although the pilot was officially finalised in early 2020, the team is now heavily involved in the global rollout of the programme together with other UNDP colleagues including supporting and supervising these processes. The Green Growth and Jobs Accelerator Project (GGJAP) is the latest example of this continuation. GGJAP is a project that comes under the Danish-Arab Partnership Programme (DAPP) with an inception date of 1st January 2023. This exciting new project is based in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan and runs from 2023 to 2027.
Furthermore, the team has launched sector-specific Accelerators and partnerships with external partners where UNDP provides support on the Impact Measurement and Management (IMM) methodology that underlines the SDG Accelerator.
