UNDP and the UN
The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) ensures interagency coordination and decision making at the country level. The main purpose of the UNCT is for individual agencies to plan and work together, as part of the Resident Coordinator system, to ensure the delivery of tangible results in support of the development agenda of the Government.
The UN Country Team in Malawi, representing both resident and non-resident UN agencies, Funds and Programmes, ensures that the United Nations’ collective human, technical and financial resources are deployed in the most effective and efficient manner. It works through the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) which, developed under the leadership of the Government, outlines all of the UN’s work in Malawi and aims at coherence amongst UN agencies and programmes operating in Malawi.
The UN family in Malawi is composed of 21 Agencies, Funds and Programmes
- UN Women
- UN Human rights
- UN Volunteers
The UNCT meets once a month and makes decisions through a consultative process. It is led by the Resident Coordinator (RC) and supported by the Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO).
