The UNDP Oslo Governance Centre (OGC) is UNDP’s Global Policy Centre for policy development and applied research on pressing governance issues. The centre provides advice to UNDP programs on the ground and to UN global leadership on core and emerging governance issues. We connect research, policy, and practice by leveraging key partnerships with leading research institutions and relevant communities of practice. The OGC has a particular focus on building such partnership in relevant development contexts, as well as with Nordic actors.
