Partnerships are at the centre of all our work. In South Africa, we actively promote a range of development partnerships with all stakeholders, both national and international, working together in all phases of the development cycle, from programme design, through implementation, monitor and evaluation, to impact assessment and the formulation of new interventions.
UNDP’s most important partner is the Government of South Africa on its efforts to reduce inequality and urban/ rural poverty.
In 2012, UNDP entered into a Partnership Framework Agreement with the Department of International Relations and Cooperation.
The objectives of this strategic partnership include working together on issues of global and regional concerns that have an impact on the development prospects of countries and regions, such as MDGs and South South Cooperation.
Our partners in South Africa include departments of the National,
Provincial and Local governments as well as civil society organisations, other international and donor agencies, academic and think tanks.
We have recently extended our partnerships to include the private sector.
Our partners include:
· Canadian International Development Agency
· European Union Commission
