UN Works in Cameroon

Delivering as one for sustainable development

The United Nations System supports the Cameroon Government for sustainable development, with high considerations for the most vulnerable segment of the country, to leave no one behind. For this, some 16 UN Funds, Programmes and Agencies agreed to synergise their response to the development and humanitarian priorities of Cameroon within 2018-2020 United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). This choice falls in line with Cameroon’s ambition for sufficient human capital capable for sustainable growth, as she gears towards emergence by 2035 and the transformative sustainable development agenda.

For the 2018-2020 timeframe, the United Nations System in Cameroon is committed to supporting the Cameroon Government in the following areas:

  1. Development of job opportunities and social inclusion;
  2. Health and nutrition;
  3. Education and vocational training;
  4. Resilience, food security and early recovery

The four pillars bring together the collective expertise of 16 UN agencies to contribute to the achievement of national development goals and aspirations and a concrete step towards an “Emerging Cameroon” for the Cameroonian people.

Building on all its comparative advantages and mutualizing our resources; the UN in Cameroon will be able to bring to the fore their catalytic and synergic contribution to a Cameroon whose development is driven by people, relying on the potential offered by Cameroonians especially women, youth and children.
