UN DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE FRAMEWORK


The second 2010-2015 UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) reflects the programme of cooperation between the UN System and the Government of Armenia and sets the framework for the development projects in the country. It aims at establishing a common framework for all UN Agencies operating in the country.

The UNDAF defines the areas where the UN's collective, coherent and integrated interventions will make a significant and strategic contribution towards addressing the economic, social, governance and environmental challenges facing the country. The UNDAF Outcomes represent strategic areas of focus for development cooperation. They are as follows:

  • Outcome 1: Inclusive and sustainable growth is promoted by reducing disparities and expanding economic opportunities for vulnerable groups.

  • Outcome 2: Democratic governance is strengthened by improving accountability, promoting institutional and capacity development and expanding people’s participation.

  • Outcome 3: Access and quality of social services is improved especially for vulnerable groups.

  • Outcome 4: Environment and disaster risk reduction is integrated into national and local development frameworks.

The new UNDAF pursues the following key priorities:

  1. Mobilize to achieve the MDGs;
  2. Provide rapid response to the crisis, in particular in the areas of social protection and employment generation;
  3. Improve quality, accessibility and affordability of health care, education and other social services;
  4. Support the implementation of the ambitious reform agenda and application of EU standards across the 3 branches of power;
  5. Promote energy efficiency, ensure low carbon path of development and strengthen capacities for disaster risk reduction;
  6. Enhance citizen participation and promote confidence building, tolerance and social inclusion.
