UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF)

Ethiopia is on its fourth framework, the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), jointly developed by the Government and the United Nations Country Team. 

 
The 2016-2020 UNDAF is the key programming instrument of the Delivering as One (DaO) process in Ethiopia. It aims to ensure coherent, efficient and effective UN system operations in full alignment with national development priorities.  
 
The UNDAF promotes and benefits from strong Government ownership, and is guided by United Nations Development Group (UNDG) programming policies and the five key UNDG programming principles: a human rights-based approach; gender equality; environmental sustainability; capacity development; and results-based management.   
 
A total estimated US$ 3 billion is required to implement the UNDAF fully over the next four years.
