Background

The overall objective is to consolidate the modernization process in various sectors with a view to achieving the MDGs, the points of the Poverty Reduction Strategy, under the leadership of the government and with the coordinated cooperation of the United Nations Agencies. The Programme will support the design, development and implementation of policies in various sectors, using a socially inclusive approach, under the leadership of the national government, and strengthening infrastructure investment mechanisms in smaller cities, outlying areas and rural zones. These interventions will have the backing of leading institutions in various sectors, in areas specifically identified as poor, and public participation, making use of current initiatives and successful experiences and seeking to create synergy, the mobilization of additional resources and the incorporation of new actors in the sectors’ development.
