The UN system continues online consultations to bring the voices of the government at all levels and a significant number and diversity of non-state stakeholders to the table. The extensive information collected through this consultation process will be invaluable for designing the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2021-2025.
The new UNSDCF will guide the work and collaboration of the Government of Georgia and the United nations till 2026 towards one overarching priority, “Enhancing Human Wellbeing, Capabilities and Social Equality”. To contribute to this priority, the Cooperation Framework will be articulated around five priority areas: effective, transparent and accountable institutions; equal and inclusive access to quality services; inclusive economy and human capital development (jobs/livelihoods); human security and resilience; and environment and climate change.
On June 3 the UN has organised a consultation meeting to discuss the equal and inclusive access to quality services. Over 55 representatives of the Georgian Government, civil society, academia and international organizations attended the meeting.
