The United Nations’ operational activities are carried out at the request and in accordance with the policies and priorities of Government.
The UN coordinates its activities through the United Nations Country Team and through inter-agency working groups under the three themes of Social Inclusion, Environmental Protection, Local Governance and Territorial Development. Progress is measured by the tracking of key indicators. Meanwhile, the United Nations Theme Groups on HIV/AIDS and on Human Rights and Gender also contribute to a more cohesive approach.
The UN organizations present in the country work together through the United Nations Country Team. Where possible, the Country Team jointly implements projects to improve coherence, sustainability, effectiveness and efficiency in development results.
