UN raises $797m for Zim

The United Nations has set aside $797 million under the Zimbabwe United Nations Development Assistance Framework for 2012-2015.

ZUNDAF is the UN’s strategic programme framework to support national development priorities and the Millennium Development Goals) by 2015.

“It is designed at a strategic level to provide the Government of Zimbabwe and the UN Country Team with a flexible and agile framework, responding and adapting in a holistic manner to the evolving national context,” the document says.

“It incorporates principles of recovery and development. Increased effectiveness through UN coherence and stronger partnerships are key.”

The document says the development of the framework was jointly led by the government and the UN’s team, with the participation of donors and civil society organisations, ensuring national ownership and inclusiveness throughout the process.

“Important lessons learnt from the implementation of the 2007-2011 ZUNDAF had a marked effect on the design of the 2012-2015 document,” said a UN senior official in an interview.

“The onus is now on all of us to ensure that the implementation of the project has substantial impact in uplifting the standard of living of the people of Zimbabwe.”
