Over the past decades, China has been increasingly engaging in international development and cooperating as part of China’s wider approach to South-South cooperation increasingly, this cooperation also involves multilateral development agencies. Here, UNDP has been at the forefront since signing a MoU with China in 2010 to expand the on-going domestic engagement of UNDP in China to also increasingly work together with Chinese institutions as part of China’s global engagement.
