Integrating environmental sustainability in the UN Development Assistance Frameworks (UNDAF) and UN common country programming processes
The project supports UN Country Teams to strengthen the integration of environmental sustainability, climate change considerations and multilateral environmental agreements´ priorities.
By doing so, UN Environment not only ensures the inclusion of the environmental pillar of sustainable development but also it coordinates its own programme with the priorities and comparative advantages of the UN at country level. For more information on how environmental issues are integrated in the cooperation frameworks of the region please check this fact sheet.
In the Latin America and Caribbean region, there are 26 UN Country Teams: Argentina, Barbados & OCDS, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad & Tobago, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Suriname.
All of them count on a framework of work signed jointly with the government that establishes country priorities to be supported by the UN in terms of sustainable development. These frameworks can be found on the UN Development Group webpage.
