Morocco, UN System Sign 2017-2021 UNDAF
The Moroccan government and the United Nations System signed, on Tuesday in Rabat, the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for Morocco for the period 2017-2021.

The plan, which will guide UN support for the country's development over five years, will mark a new chapter in the Morocco-UN partnership for sustainable development.

The UNDAF was signed by minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, and UN resident coordinator, Philippe Poinsot.

Bourita said that the UNDAF 2017-2021 is the result of a transparent and inclusive preparatory process with all the national parties concerned and is an ambitious program in line with the national priorities for development.

For his part, Philippe Poinsot said that "the UNDAF reflects the commitment of the United Nations system in Morocco to supporting national priorities and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in the country. Emphasis will be put on strengthening coordination, coherence and synergy of our interventions."

The United Nations Development Assistance Framework for the period 2017-2021 is meant to bring value-added to Morocco's efforts through support targeting six strategic priorities for the sustainable development of the Kingdom.

These include democratic governance and advanced regionalization, inclusive and sustainable development, health, education, reduction of socio-economic, territorial and gender inequalities, and rural development.
