The Common Country Assessment (CCA) and UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF)

In July 1997 the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan introduced a wide-ranging reform programme for the UN. It called for a new leadership culture and management structure at the UN. The Common Country Assessment (CCA) and the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) were introduced to strengthen the coherence and effectiveness of the UN system’s contribution to a country’s development efforts. The preparation and the monitoring of the implementation of the CCA and UNDAF are key functions of the IASU / UNRC, but inputs are provided by all UN agencies in Thailand as well as the Royal Thai Government and representatives of the private sector and civil society.

The CCA represents an independent assessment by the United Nations system of the development situation and critical issues facing a country, particularly in light of the declarations, goals, and plans of action agreed upon at the series of global conferences convened by the UN in the 1990s. See the Introduction.

The UNDAF is a planning framework for the development operations of the UN system at the country level. It identifies the common objectives, common strategies of development assistance and a common timeframe for follow-up activities shared by all resident UN agencies. The UNDAF thus enables a holistic UN approach to country challenges. Download the latest UNDAF for Thailand 2002-2006.
