2021 was a very special year for the UN and the Government of Mongolia, as it was the penultimate year of UNDAF implementation and the 60th anniversary of Mongolia’s membership in the United Nations.
The UN Country Team successfully conducted UNDAF evaluation and prepared a comprehensive new generation of Common Country Analysis (CCA), which served as a core integrated analytical tool for designing the new United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2023-2027 for Mongolia.
The UNDAF’s independent evaluation concluded that the outputs under the three UNDAF outcomes have been achieved, and the UN has adapted its work and responded to the country’s emerging and unforeseen needs. The most prominent example is undoubtedly the UN’s collective response to coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
for the last two years.
To cite a few examples, the UN supported 489,081 children engaged in distance learning, provided vaccines for 43% of the total population, and supported 1,726 health facilities and 8,610 health workers. As a result, Mongolia was one of the leading countries in vaccination, with more than 80% of the target population vaccinated with at least two doses of vaccines. This is a big victory for this developing nation. In addition, the UN Country Team (UNCT) provided coordinated support to the government at the strategic level to accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the improvement of SDG coordination mechanisms.
