Georgia became the 179th member of the United Nations in July 1992, thereby accepting the values and principles of the organization. The Office of the United Nations in Georgia was established in 1993. Since then, the country has been home to UN agencies, funds, and programmes that work as a team to respond to national development needs and improve the economic and social conditions of people in Georgia.

The resident UN agencies form the UN Country Team (UNCT), which is led by the UN Resident Coordinator who also serves as the Resident Representative for UNDP.
