The success of UNDP activities in Kazakhstan largely hinges on close cooperation with partners. Because UNDP seeks to ensure a predictable flow of resources to support its programmes and projects and follows strictly the principles of transparency, fairness and neutrality in grant funds distribution, we have earned a reputation of a trusted and efficient partner.
