Dear Colleagues,

Has anyone used the UNDP archives?  If so, or if you otherwise have info, would you please pass on contact info.  I have been in touch with the UN Archives and my contact there--who has been very helpful locating documents--has come up empty when attempting to make contact with UNDP.

Thanks,

Christian
