The United Nations Development Programme works in nearly 170 contrives and territories to fight poverty, reduction of inequalities and exclusion. Therefore it supports governments to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. The UNDP focuses on building sustainable development, democratic governance and peace building as well as climate and disaster resilience. It sees itself especially promoting human rights for women, minorities, the poorest and most vulnerable.



My name’s Ashvini and I’m a second-year Politics and International Relations student at the University of York but I’m (really) from London and (originally) from Britain and India. HamMUN 2016 was my first ever MUN conference and I I’m really excited to be returning as one of the co-chairs of the UNDP, which I hope will help me in my endeavour to work in International Development and also to establish once and for all whether chairs truly “have more fun”.
In my spare time I enjoy napping and Netflix as well as Hamilton and hummus. Overall, I would say I love MUNs and puns. Hope to see you all at HamMUN 2017!

Natalie Chung

My name is Natalie Chung, and I'm originally from the sunny city of Singapore and have spent the last 2 years studying in the UK. Come September, I will (hopefully) be starting my degree in International Relations having just completed my A Levels in the UK. I have been doing MUN for almost 5 years, taking a short hiatus this year to focus on my A Levels, participating in no less than 13 conferences as a delegate, chair and secretariat member in multiple countries and continents, including chairing at HamMUN 2016! As a self-proclaimed travel addict, I am so excited to return to the beautiful city of Hamburg for one of the best conferences around and having the privilege of being your Chair in the UNDP. I look forward to working with all of you to make this the best HamMUN yet!

Leonard Heberer

My Name is Leonard Heberer and I will have the pleasure of being one of the Vice-Chairs for the UNDP at HamMUN 2017. I have been doing MUN since April 2014 and HAMMUN will be my 17th conference overall. When it comes to MUN I´ve done pretty much everything one can imagine: Delegate, Chair, Advisor, Secretariat, you name it. Over the past years MUN has become more for me than just a hobby, but a possibility to meet interesting people from all over the world and what makes our modern, multipolar world go round.

I believe that HamMUN will be the ideal opportunity for you, the Delegates, to deepen your knowledge, make new friends and experience the very unique way of how HamMUN parties!

Looking forward to fruitful debates, creative solutions and an amazing conference!
