This report highlights the collective work of UN agencies between 2012-2016 UNDAF projects in addressing key issues facing the sub-region – the environment, disaster risk reduction, energy, social protection, health, and poverty reduction — through interventions in capacity building, support to policy and legislative design, advocacy initiatives and other forms of technical assistance.
In addition, the report considers how the UNDAF key achievements fed into the development of the 2017-2021 Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework (MSDF). It also touches on initial efforts to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which were approved in September 2015. Finally, it illustrates how the 2012-2016 UNDAF process shaped how we work within the UN system, with other development partners, and with our national counterparts in the Eastern Caribbean countries.
The 2012-2016 UNDAF represented the first time that the UN system in the Eastern Caribbean had developed a common programming framework. It was developed through extensive consultations with the Governments of Barbados and the nine member states of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, civil society groups and other stakeholders.
