U.S. Committee for the United Nations Development Program
The U.S. Committee for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP-USA) was an independent 501 organization and one of several "friends of" organizations in the United Nations (UN) family, dedicated to the promotion of the UN and its goals. Founded in 1995, UNDP-USA was the officially recognized NGO in the United States for the UNDP, supporting the goals of the agency, and the UN in general, while helping to inform the American people about the often misunderstood work of the UN. The U.S. Committee's stated goal was to help construct a world in which Americans are well-educated about the vital importance of international development activities to the building of a more democratic, prosperous, peaceful, and united planet.
After 14 years of work, the U.S. Committee for the United States Development Programme became apart of the UNDP's Washington Liaison Office in December 2009. http://www.us.undp.org/
