UNDP makes available wealth of global knowledge and experience on development. It draws upon the expertise available in areas such as poverty reduction, democratic governance, gender equality, environmental sustainability, capacity development, and crisis prevention and recovery, and South-South Cooperation in the UNDP Regional Service Centres as well as the Headquarter units such the Bureaus for Crisis Prevention & Recovery, Development Policy and the Partnerships. In promoting South-South Cooperation, UNDP will also encourage government to tap on knowledge from countries and institutions in the Global South. UNDP continues to work closely with national and international United Nations Volunteers in the implementation of its projects.
United Nations Country Team
All UN agencies work hand in hand to ensure the effective implementation of our integrated mission agenda and achievement of the MDGs and other shared goals. Together, we form one United Nations Country Team (UNCT).
The UNCT’s overall vision and work is detailed in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). This framework outlines the key development challenges facing Afghanistan, taking particular account of its conflict-affected, transitional context. It also describes our core strategies, results-based management approach and mechanisms for monitoring and evaluation, coordination and implementation.
The UNDAF specifies several priority areas and fundamental challenges facing Afghanistan that the UN can help to address. These are: equitable economic development, basic social services, social equity and investment in human capital, justice and rule of law, and accountable governance.
