Currently, UN system’s programme work in Kazakhstan is united by the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), locally known as the Partnership Framework for Development (PFD) for 2016-2020. In view of its expected completion in December 2020 the UNCT has started planning for the next, post 2020 five-year programming cycle.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (“Cooperation Framework” or UNSDCF) is a new name to former United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), which was given to more accurately reflect the contemporary relationship between Governments and the UN development system in collaborating to achieve the SDGs.
The Cooperation Framework will be developed through an inclusive and participatory process jointly with the Government and other stakeholders.
In this context, the UNCT seeks services of an international consultant to help develop the 2021-2025 UNSDCF with an integrated programming approach, addressing core programming principles in a holistic manner. The key principals are:
With 2030 in sight, the UN development system aims to design the Cooperation Framework that will truly make a difference in less than three cycles. Therefore, the vision of its contribution and the design of medium-term support must be grounded in a clearly articulated, evidence-based, robust theory of change that describes the interdependent changes necessary for the country to achieve the 2030 Agenda. It is important to ensure that the process of formulating the Cooperation Framework is inclusive to the extent feasible, involving adequately the partners and beneficiaries of the Cooperation Framework such as the youth, children, women, persons with disability, civil society, private sector and beyond. The work will build on the Final Evaluation of the current PFD and the UN’s Common Country Assessment, as well as other relevant UN publications and online consultations with UN agencies as deem needed prior to visit to Kazakhstan; participation and support with facilitation of the multi-stakeholder Strategic Planning Retreat in Nur-Sultan in the beginning of October 2019; development of the draft and final UNSDCF document, including the Results and M&E tables in consultation with the UNCT, NRAs, the Government, development partners, civil society, private sector and other stakeholders.
