UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in nearly 170 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
In Azerbaijan, UNDP has been working as a trusted partner of the Government and the people for more than 26 years. As part of the UN Country Team, UNDP aims to advance inclusive, sustainable and human-centred development for all people in Azerbaijan.

This publication aims to increase the private sector’s understanding of the gender dimension and strengthen its capacity to implement women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community. It presents a snapshot of the situation for women globally and in Azerbaijan. The brochure presents basic information on the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), explains the role of the private sector in advancing gender equality and provides guidance on joining and implementing the WEPs. It also contains examples of best practices to inspire companies to become WEPs signatories and actively participate in the WEPs global movement.
UNDP’s ongoing partnership framework with the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan SOCAR came into effect in 2015, with a firm commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy intensity of SOCAR’s major facilities. This support is delivered through the project ‘Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions’ (NAMA), funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implemented by UNDP. The project helps SOCAR in the implementation of its Climate Change Mitigation Strategy by promoting and upscaling GHG mitigation measures across three key dimensions: in construction design, transport and associated gas capturing. Take a look at some of the key project milestones that have been achieved during these years.
