The right to development is comprised of both national and international dimensions and highlights the right of people to possess all human rights through developmental processes. Such a significant aim differentiates the right to development from other instances of human rights. All national and international elements are supposed to cooperate regarding the right to development. The present study is intended to put emphasis on the role and cooperation of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in implementing the right to development in Iran regarding the fact that the international system is no longer state-centered and it rather makes use of different players who can be taken as a complement to the state. The main question that the present study has tried to answer is the role of UNDP in implementing the right to development and whether it has been successful in performing its activities in Iran or not. The central focus of the multilateral attitude of the UNDP is the declaration of the right to development. It has also emphasized constant development and human security which are complements to the right to development. This program suggested some educational programs and local procedures and technical assistance in order to decrease the influence of obstacles that hinder the processes of development and destroy the countries which are not prepared. The UNDP of Iran increases the national self-reliance by suggesting some patterns and area-based development programs through boosting managerial abilities and technical specialties of individuals and national institutes that succeeded as a result of education and implementation. The UNDP as United Nations’ global network of development has harmonized the national and global attempts to achieve millennium developments goals. It has also boosted the abilities of the countries in achieving millennium development goals, improving economical programs, managing natural disasters, training how to prevent epidemic diseases, protecting the environment, and managing crises.
