2005-2009 UNDAF FOR ROMANIA


The UNDAF for Romania attempts to articulate national development strategies, such as poverty reduction, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and human development promotion.

Three UNDAF priority areas for UN system intervention were identified:
i) Capacity building for good governance;
ii) Economic Growth – Poverty Alleviation;
iii) Equal Access to Basic Social Services, with a strategic outcome established in each of those areas.
The successful implementation of 2005-2009 UNDAF is expected to lead to:

Strengthened environmental governance at central and local levels.
Enhanced policies, legislation and implementation capacity to better protect the rights of vulnerable groups.
An improved capacity of the government to efficiently respond to HIV/AIDS.
A National Population Policy in place.
Empowered vulnerable groups (such as rural women, the youth, the Roma).
Improved access of children to quality early, pre-school and compulsory education.
Increased access to quality care and protection services of vulnerable and marginalized children.
Improved quality of service for HIV/AIDS and integrated management of infant and child illnesses.

For additional information on the Development Assistance Framework in Romania, consult the UNDAF 2005-2009, a publication of the United Nations System in Romania.

UN RESIDENT COORDINATOR AND UN COUNTRY TEAM

The United Nations operation in Romania is coordinated through the Resident Coordinator (RC) system. The RC system brings together the different UN agencies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their support to national development priorities. Working closely with the Government, the Resident Coordinator and the United Nations Country Team advocate the UN agenda as outlined by member states’ commitments around a set of principles, goals and targets on development, governance, peace, security, and human rights.
