Windhoek - The United Nations (UN) together with the National Planning Commission (NPC) signed the UNPAF 2014 – 2018 Action Plan. Signing on behalf of the government was the NPC’s Permanent Secretary Mr. Andries Leevi Hungamo. The UNPAF pillars include Institutional Environment, Education, Health and Poverty for which UN heads of agencies from UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO & UNDP respectively signed, representing the UN.

The UNPAF is the vehicle for strategic partnerships and resource planning which will drive the programmes through which the UN Country Team (UNCT) will support Namibia in the implementation of the Fourth National Development Plan (NDP 4) and the realisation of its development goals under Vision 2030.

Following the signing event with the UN, the 2 signed UNPAF documents will further be shared with the Permanent Secretaries from the Office of the Prime Minister and Ministries of Education, Health, Gender Equality and Child Welfare, to obtain their respective signatures. 

The UNPAF was officially signed last year on 22 August and publicly launched on 24 October at the 2013 UN day commemoration event.
