What We Do
UNDP works to support the ongoing peace and confidence building process by promoting initiatives that encourage dialogue and cooperation between the communities of Cyprus. Together with the European Union and other donors, UNDP in Cyprus works in support of different bi-communal Technical Committees in the implementation of their confidence buding measures. Our main partners are: the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage, the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus and the Technical Committee on Crossings.
Through cultural heritage conservation projects, community engagement initiatives and large infrastructure and urban upgrading projects we aim to support both political peacemaking and practical confidence building processes.
