The United Nations and UNDP in Chile

Latin America in general and Chile in particular are not large recipients of Official Development Assistance (ODA). As a middle-income country, Chile has made significant progress in per capita income and, as a result, it is not a major recipient of traditional international cooperation. The technical assistance received has been concentrated in the third generation reform areas such as science and technology, the strengthening of democratic governance, the improvement of social protection policies and the challenge posed by environmental sustainability.
