The last UNDAF for the Republic of Mauritius ended in 2003 and there has been no overarching UN/Government cooperation framework since, for obvious reasons.
In the wake of the UN Reform which seek to establish greater accountability and clarity of leadership, stronger integration of system-wide efforts and action, higher standards of transparency and accountability to government and to people, and a diversity of partnerships needed to deliver on results thereby revitalising UN and Government partnership frameworks, the UNCT has agreed to embark on a process to develop an eventual partnership framework (light UNDAF type) with the Government of the Republic of Mauritius.
Government of the Republic of Mauritius and the UNCT has agreed to develop a strategic UNDAF (the Mauritius Strategic Partnership Framework - SPF) at outcome level for the period of 2019-2023. As a first step in the process a Common Country Analysis (CCA) was undertaken earlier in 2018. A Strategic Prioritization Retreat is due to be held at the beginning of September 2018 to discuss the UN’s strategic contribution to national development priorities.
The RC Office is therefore seeking the services of a Team Leader and a National Consultant to support the elaboration of the Mauritius Strategic Partnership Framework 2019-2023 including formulation of the associated results resource framework. It is expected to be a strategic document of 20-30 pages (est. 20,000-25,000 words) designed to serve as an orientation framework for all UN interventions in the country over the next 5 years. The SPF will include a results matrix and a set of indicators to help measure progress towards the set outcomes. It must adhere to the four key UN programming principles:1) Leave no one behind; 2) Human rights, gender equality and women’s empowerment; 3) Sustainability and resilience; and 4) Accountability and six key approaches to integrated programming: 1) Results-focused programming; 2) Capacity development; 3) Risk-informed programming; 4) Development, humanitarian and peacebuilding linkages; 5) Coherent policy support; and 6) Partnerships.
The SPF will be drafted through a consultative process and finalized by end of December 2018 with signing envisaged for January 2019.
