The UNDAF is the result of an ongoing consultative process, both within the United Nations and with the Government and its partners. It is intended to operationalize global targets such as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as being guided by national priorities outlined in the Comprehensive Development Framework (CDF) and National Poverty Reduction Strategy (NPRS). The UNDAF translates the key dimensions of these documents into a common operational framework for development activities upon which the individual United Nations Agencies, Funds and Programs will formulate their actions for the period 2005-2010.
UNDAF thus will guide the United Nations System’s efforts to assist the people and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic as they address the continuing complexities of nation building following the country’s independence in 1991. It focuses on three inter-related areas of cooperation where the United Nations System can utilize its accumulated experience, technical expertise and financial resources in achievement of the MDGs: (i) Poverty alleviation and social services; (ii) Democratic governance; and (iii) HIV/AIDS.
