In Turkmenistan, the work of all resident and non-resident organizations of the UN system working in the country is coordinated by the Office of the UN Resident Coordinator, who is also the UNDP Resident Representative. The UN Resident Coordinator is the designated representative of the Secretary-General and the leader of the UN Country Team. 

The United Nations system in Turkmenistan comprises the following agencies:

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP),

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF),

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR),

United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC),

United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

World Health Organization (WHO).

Two other affiliated organizations – the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the World Bank (WB) – although not formally part of the Resident Coordinator System, fully participate in inter-agency groups and contribute to the work of the UN System in Turkmenistan.

UNDP Turkmenistan implements its programmes along with the other UN agencies within the United Nations Development Assistance Framework 2010-2015, or UNDAF. This is the common strategic document of the Government of Turkmenistan and the UN System in delivering harmonized UN support to the implementation of the country’s development plans.

UNDP is currently involved in implementing a joint programme on strengthening the national capacity of Turkmenistan to promote and protect human rights (a joint project of EU/UNDP/OHCHR, funded by EU, 2009-2013). UNDP is facilitating the process of developing the National Human Rights Action Plan. UNDP has also contributed to the interagency efforts on development of the Action Plan to implement the HIV strategy for 2012-2015.
