United Nations Development Assisstance Framework
Jan 21, 2014
This United Nations Development Assistance Framework for Mozambique (UNDAF) 2012 – 2015 is the expression of the UN’s plan to support the Government of Mozambique in its final stretch towards the MDG timeframe of 2015. It is also the first UNDAF developed under the Delivering as One (DaO) pilot in Mozambique.
- The Economic area aims at tackling the economic disparities through a concentration on the rural poor, especially women and youth, improving their productive capacities, income and livelihoods, and reducing vulnerability to natural disasters.
- The Social area aims at reducing inequality of access to services for vulnerable groups, especially women and children. Adopting the human rights based approach, the UN’s activities focus on improving the capacity of duty bearers to provide services, and on empowering rights holders, especially vulnerable people, to access and use social services for improved health, education, water and sanitation and social protection.
- Within the Governance area, the UN will concentrate, first, on deepening democracy and increasing public accountability through both strengthening the democratic and justice institutions of government and strengthening the capacity of vulnerable populations through civil society organizations and the private sector to participate effectively in policy formulation and protect their rights.
