The United Nation Country Team (UNCT) works to achieve greater strategic coherence of the UN’s operational activities and enhance coordination with relevant stakeholders in full alignment with the Government’s national priorities. At a time of emerging prospects for peace, the United Nations supports the Government and people of Afghanistan in achieving a lasting peace, supporting a nexus from humanitarian aid to recovery and moving forward on the path to sustainable development. The United Nations joint value proposition is underpinned by human rights, gender equality, people-centered approaches and conflict sensitivity.
The Common Country Analysis (CCA) for Afghanistan is the United Nations’ independent, collective, forward-looking analysis of the country context in response to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Afghanistan’s announced plans. The CCA will be updated annually, allowing the UN country team to generate tailored analytical and policy-relevant products.
The CCA has been developed by 22 thematic writing groups. Each group comprised experts from multiple UN entities, adopting an integrated approach to the analysis going beyond the mandate of each UN entity. Special attention was paid to ensuring that the analysis reflected the complex and fast-evolving situation.
The regional office of the UN Development Coordination Office (UNDCO) provided extensive support, including assistance on developing the conflict analysis for Afghanistan. From the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Statistical Data Management Unit provided an input on Afghanistan’s progress towards the SDGs; the Sustainable Socioeconomic Transformation Section provided an analysis of the most marginalized groups in Afghanistan.
While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic limited the scope of wider stakeholder consultation, this CCA reflects the experience and knowledge accumulated through the engagement of the beneficiaries, government counterparts, donors and development partners and donors by each UN entity.
