UNDAP I was designed to support the realization of Rwanda’s medium term national development priorities under the Economic Development Poverty Reduction Strategy 2 (EDPRS2) and Rwanda Vision 2020. In alignment with the challenges identified in the Common Country Analysis and consistent with the ongoing national priorities, the UNDAP addressed the following result areas: inclusive economic transformation; accountable governance; human development and humanitarian response and disaster management.
The UNDAP I also supported the realization of the Millennium Development Goals, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.
In line with the UN Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (2012), the UNDAP I was strategic, results-oriented, and clearly reflected the UN´s ambition to provide upstream support to the national planning and implementation processes, capacity development, high quality policy advice and technical expertise based on best practices.
By mid-2018 when the UNDAP I ended, One UN had contributed to Rwanda’s national development across all result areas, and most UNDAP targets had been achieved.
