The UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) is the result of a consultative process and describes the United Nations’ areas of collaboration with the Government of Georgia (GoG) for the period 2011-2015. It is aligned with the GoG’s national development priorities of the “United Georgia without Poverty” programme, the National Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other key documents. The UNDAF translates these into a common operational framework for development activities based upon which UN organisations, individually or jointly, formulate their actions. It outlines the three interrelated thematic areas in which the UN system can most effectively respond to the priorities and needs of Georgia:
− Poverty Reduction, aims to advance inclusive development, employment creation and access to health, education and essential social services, especially for vulnerable groups.
− Democratic Development, aims to promote balanced, independent, fair and participatory governance systems and processes at all levels, based on the Rule of Law, human rights and equality principles.
− Disaster Risk Reduction, aims to build up Georgia’s resilience to disasters through prevention and minimizing damage and loss in case of emergencies.
In addition, special UN initiatives aim to contribute to rebuilding of confidence and conflict-prevention, reducing the tensions related to the situation which has emerged after the armed conflict, as well as the tensions related to the transition to democracy.
The overall resource mobilization targets amount to US$ 188.5 million over the five year implementation period of the UNDAF. Firm resource commitments will be stated in the programmes of cooperation and agency specific and project budgets during the course of UNDAF implementation.
