Legal framework

The standard basic assistance agreement (SBBA) embodies the basic conditions under which the UNDP shall assist the Government in carrrying out its development projects, and under which such UNDP projects shall be executed.

To ensure programmatic coherence among different UN entities, the UN in Moldova has adopted the Delivering as One approach, with a common partnership framework which sets out priorities over a 5-year period, one budgetary framework, complementary resource mobilisation and common business practices.

The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) is a strategic, medium term results framework that describes the collective vision and response of the UN system to national development priorities and results on the basis of normative programming principles. It describes how UN Country Teams will contribute to the achievement of development results based on a common country analysis and UN comparative advantage.

 The UNDP Country Programme Document 2018–2022 has benefited from broad-based consultations with all relevant stakeholders. It is fully aligned with national priorities and country’s commitment to pursue the European vector and achieve the Global Goals. The overarching goal of the programme derives from the UNDAF 2018-2022 vision of a country free from poverty and corruption, with reduced inequalities and strengthened social cohesion and inclusion, where human rights, gender equality, the rule of law, environmental sustainability and the well-being of the population, across the conflict divide, are nurtured and respected. UNDP will pursue three of the four UNDAF outcomes:
  • Governance, Human Rights and Gender Equality;
  • Sustainable, Inclusive and Equitable Economic Growth;
  • Environmental Sustainability and Resilience.
