The UN Development Assistance Plan ( UNDAP ) is a joint development aid instrument of the United Nations and its international and national partners, which is oriented towards the needs of the recipient countries and the internationally agreed development goals. It was introduced under the former UNDP administrator James Speth. UNDAP builds on the previous programming processes for Development Assistance Frameworks (UNDAF) and corresponding action plans.


The UNDAP method was developed on the basis of previous UNDAF experiences, experiences with the UNDG principle Delivering as One ( loosely translated: service provision in the overall package ) as well as findings from the Joint Assistance Strategy for Tanzania (JAST) launched in 2007 - Had drawn participation.

The aim of an UNDAP is to reduce unnecessary parallel structures in the planning effort for the UN institutions and the national partners and, if possible, to adapt previous UNDAF requirements and country-specific processes and thereby make them more efficient. The organization-specific requirements should be implemented consistently and loss-free in a sufficient program logic.

The plan creates links to regional and global initiatives in the same sector in order to achieve the greatest possible synergy between the UN plans and multilateral and bilateral programs. Annual reviews and adjustments ensure that the UNDAP is permanently valid. The plan and the implementation modalities ensure the coherence of planning, implementation and reporting.


Tanzania was the first country to use the UNDAP method. The four-year plan for the country was $ 777 million. It was put into effect on June 24, 2011 by the Joint Steering Committee (JSC), which was formed by the Tanzanian government and the United Nations.

As part of the UNDAP process, the participating organizations, the UN Development Program , the UN Population Fund , the UN Children's Fund and the World Food Program of the United Nations, published a Common Country Program Document (CCPD) which highlighted the various priorities.


In May 2010 a workshop took place in Uruguay at which an UNDAP concept was developed, which was supposed to update the UNDAF agreement between the Uruguayan government and the United Nations. The economic development of Uruguay was characterized by steady growth in the following years, so that international support has now been discontinued.


The United Nations have agreed a development aid plan (UNDAP II) for the period 2018–2023 with the Rwandan government. This is where new global and regional impulses are reflected, such as the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development , the 2063 Agenda of the African Union and the 2050 Vision of the East African Community . The agreed plan for Rwanda focuses on economic and social transformation and the further development of state structures to support these processes.
