English: PDF

The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) is a key element of the UN Reform and the joint response of the UN Country Team (UNCT), the national stakeholders and the Government of The Gambia to the national development priorities with the view to eradicating poverty and contributing to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Common priority areas have been identified to leverage the UNCT’s support to poverty eradication (through agriculture and food security, for example), health and social protection systems, including good governance as an underpinning value. These objectives are in line with the national Programme for Accelerated Growth and Employment (PAGE) 2012-2015 and the Vision 2020. The design of the UNDAF is guided by the human rights principles. The UNCT, given the current global economic context, is also committed to engage partnerships that will position The Gambia on a path to achieve the aforementioned objectives.
