UNDP WITHIN THE UN TEAM IN JORDAN
The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Jordan, in which the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a part of, consists of 17 agencies, funds and programmes.
The UNCT, comprising all heads of agencies comes together at regular intervals under the leadership of the Resident Coordinator (RC) on issues ranging from development and humanitarian assistance within Jordan to issues pertaining to common or shared facilities and services. The UNCT ensures interagency coordination and decision making at the country level. The main purpose of the Country Team is for individual agencies to plan and work together, as part of the RC System, to ensure the delivery of tangible results in support of the national development and humanitarian agenda.
The guiding framework under which the UNCT operates in Jordan is the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDA F). In this context the UNCT meets to ensure that implementation of the UNDA F is in line with the workplan, that it remains relevant, and that it is responsive to national priorities and targets.
UNDP, as an active member of the UNCT, has led on and participated in different activities and initiatives. UNDP is currently leading the Systemic Reform working group.
