The Brits, like UNDP-USA, support Pakistan

The UK's Department for International Development (DFID) has recently pledged $35 million to Pakistani NGOs in order to promote good governance and state accountability programs. UNDP in Pakistan will be responsible for administering these funds appropriately.

UNDP-USA also supported a project of its own in Pakistan last year, working on long-term efforts to support the MDGs, particularly addressing education and health care:

UNDP-USA worked in partnership with UNDP through the Global Resource Mobilization Program, identifying and leveraging private contributions in the United States, particularly from the Pakistan-American Diaspora population, to support the project in Pakistan. To date, UNDP-USA has provided $1.4 million to UNDP Pakistan in support of the work of UNDP in achieving the MDGs in Pakistan.
