UNDP in Paraguay

The first United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) that governed United Nations agencies in Paraguay was developed in 2001-2002. Its predecessor, the Common Country Assessment of the UN System in Paraguay (CCA 2001), identified the main nodes of development: “a depleted model of economic growth, environmental degradation, inequality and social exclusion, and a rule of law that is limited in its scope and in its effect”. The United Nations System then proposed to direct its cooperative efforts towards the following general objective: “To contribute to Paraguay’s sustainable human development through the strengthening of its democratic and representative institutions, overcoming social inequalities and respect for the environment within a framework of full respect for human rights.” This objective was and is in effect for the period under evaluation and for the entire UN System in Paraguay.
