Rapid Integrated Assessment Report on Zambia 7NDP
The Government of the Republic of Zambia through the Ministry of National Development Planning requested support from UN Zambia to assess the level of alignment of the Seventh National Development Plan (2017-2021) Volume 1. The analysis report is meant to inform the development of Volume 2 – the 7NDP Implementation Plan.
The development of the national planning documents vis-a- vis the National Vision, medium term development plans and subsequent implementation plans and frameworks has highlighted strengths and constraints in the development planning process. In this view and as aligned to the SDG principles, the formulation of the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP) called for a paradigm shift in its design using the ‘Integrated Development Approach’. This approach is premised on the principle of ‘leaving no-one behind’
