UNDP's Regional Bureau for Europe and the CIS (RBEC) serves 29 countries in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Working under a mandate issued by the UN Secretary-General, RBEC, formerly the Directorate for Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, began the process of establishing offices and programmes in the region in 1992. With its headquarters in New York, RBEC's outfit comprises 24 country offices and its Regional Centre in Bratislava.

UNDP works to promote sustainable human development in accordance with the Millennium Development Goals as the international community’s global development agenda, both in this region and globally. It does so by supporting UNDP’s priorities in poverty alleviation, promoting democratic governance and human rights, combating HIV/AIDS and other epidemiological development threats, promoting sustainable environmental and energy policies, as well as preventing conflict and assisting in post-conflict recovery.
