About Company (UNDP Pakistan):

The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization that aims to maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation, and be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations.

About Project:

In support of Government-owned and led reform processes, the project provides critical support to the government and stakeholders in the administrative, legal, and economic integration of the Merged Areas (MA) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The project provides integrated world-class technical assistance across all critical sectors to facilitate integration processes, support effective district-level governance, provide technical assistance to policy-making, support improved economic management, and the introduction of inclusive local governance structures.

The Government of KP has adopted a multi-year Accelerated Implementation Program (AIP), 2019-2022, to address the key developmental gaps in the Merged Areas (MA), erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

AIP is the first three-year program under the Tribal Decade Strategy of the government that seeks to address developmental disparity of the MA and bring these areas at par with other areas of Pakistan.

UNDP is implementing its Merged Areas Governance Project (MAGP) as key partner in the process of erstwhile FATA development. MAGP seeks to support AIP implementation through technical assistance in the areas of project formulation, context specific innovations in service delivery systems, results oriented programming, data collection and analysis to contribute to development of locally feasible solutions.
