UNDP Grant Program???

As I was sorting my email tonight, what had my attention was the very title of my blog post. I cannot really remember that I signed up to any of the things related to UNDP. I cannot even define what does it stand for as the only thing clear to me is that the first two letters mean United Nations.

Just so you know, here's the exact content of the email:

In my opinion I firmly believe that there is something fishy going on ...that this is some sort of a scam. I don't want to be a victim or my pals to fall on this crap so I am spreading the word. Have you received this kind of email before or maybe lately. Whether it is a YES or a NO I need to know your take on this. Please? 
If ever I am wrong, my apologies :'( I just needed someone else's confirmation and  to be informed as well.
