The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) will support Vietnam in creating development policies, focusing on social security, law reform and the capacity to cope with climate change.

The assistance will come in the form of policy consultancy and technical assistance.

The move is part of the first co-operation program between Vietnam, UNDP and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) during the 2012-16 period.

It was approved in principle by the Executive Council of UNDP and UNFPA at its four-day regular session ending yesterday in New York.

The Vietnam-UNDP cooperation program, worth more than US$173 million, will prioritize the construction of policies and improving the health care system, including reproductive health and gender equality.

The program acknowledges that Vietnam has fulfilled the majority of its eight millennium development goals, recorded high economic growth and strongly reduced the number of poor households over the past two decades.

Leaders of UNDP, UNFPA and many member countries of the executive council spoke highly of the Vietnamese government's commitment to promoting the joint co-ordination between UN organizations via the One UN Initiative (an ongoing process to make improvements to the way the entire UN family works).

They also praised its efforts to use development resources effectively.

Addressing the session, Ambassador Le Hoai Trung, head of the Permanent Mission of Viet Nam to the UN, said Vietnam-UNDP was built on the basis of the Vietnamese socio-economic development plan during the 2011-15 period, making use of the strengths of UN organizations and achievements made by the nation itself.
