Guyana United Nations Development Assistance Framework Results

Guyana United Nations Development Assistance Framework Results

At its January 2011 retreat, the UNCT identified four national development priority goals, and four adjunctive outcomes as the organising principles for joint action and the country programmes of the individual members. The development priorities and outcomes are as follows:

Goal: Transforming the economy while combating climate change and enhancing the quality of life of Guyanese by utilising the natural resources, while neither degrading nor contaminating them.

Outcome: National policies, strategies, and plans for disaster risk reduction (DRR), management of natural resources, and access to clean energy and services developed, implemented, monitored, and evaluated.

Goal: Expanding economic opportunities for all (as targeted in the PRSP).

Outcome: Improved economic and social policies and programmes to enable the creation of a climate-resilient economy in the context of the Low Carbon Development Strategy.

Goal: Enhancing an inclusive governance model based on the rule of law in which citizens and their organisations participate in the decision-making processes that affect their well-being.

Outcome: Strengthened public participation, trust, and confidence in national governance institutions, including the five Rights Commissions, the Parliament, and GECOM.

Goal: Enhancing human and social services, especially for key populations at higher risk.

Outcome: National development plans, policies, programmes and legislation (where required) formulated, implemented, monitored, and evaluated to achieve the MDGs, with special attention to key populations at higher risk and the progressive realisation of human rights.

The selected objectives towards which the agencies, funds and programmes will work are set out in the Results Matrix found in the Guyana UNDAF document.
