A new Cooperation Framework represents a set of expectations of the Government matched with a set of undertakings by the UN development system. Rarely is a Cooperation Framework setting out an entirely new agenda. More typically, it contains both familiar results and the unfinished business of the previous Cooperation Framework, as well as new support areas. A certain number of programmes from the previous Cooperation Framework will inevitably continue until completion. Nonetheless, formulating it should include reviewing the UNCT’s assets and configuration for the task at hand. This should be an iterative process fully involving all concerned entities.
