Country Analysis Report
The Country Analysis (CA) for Zambia provides the analytical base for the next Zambia-United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework, which will replace the current United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) in 2016. The CA has been jointly produced by the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in order to ensure alignment of UN efforts with national priorities and internationally agreed goals, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from 2016. The CA will also contribute to preparation of the Seventh National Development Plan.
The CA will guide the UNCT on the key development challenges that the United Nations in Zambia will address, and ensure that the needs of vulnerable and marginalised groups are addressed.
