This report outlines the results of the partnership of the UNCT and the Government of Nepal towards achieving national priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) during a most unprecedented year.
The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2018-2022 sets out the UN partnership with the Government of Nepal (GoN) aimed at supporting Nepal as it carves out its development agenda over the aforementioned five-year period. At the core of this UNDAF are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Government of Nepal’s 14th and 15th Five Year Development Plan, and international commitments and norms to which Nepal is a party. Based on the lessons learned from the previous UNDAF (2013-2017), this framework builds upon successes, incorporates emerging issues and agreements, and serves to address Nepal’s larger economic, social, and environmental objectives.
The UNDAF (2018-2022) has defined four priority areas:
- Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth;
- Social Development;
- Resilience, Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change; and
- Governance, Rule of Law and Human Rights.
