Joint Workplans (JWPs) are an annual tool that operationalizes the Republic of North Macedonia and United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021-2025 (SDCF) – the key strategic document that guides the work of UN development system entities in North Macedonia.
All UN entities’ country programmes (whether already developed or still to be developed) derive from SDCF and are consolidated annually in joint workplans, one per SDCF outcome (see below).
SDCF strategic priorities and outcomes
Outcomes by 2025
Prosperity & People
Sustained and inclusive economic and social development
The living standard of all people in North Macedonia is improved through equal access to decent work and productive employment generated by an inclusive and innovative business ecosystem
People in North Macedonia have universal access to rights-based quality social services – healthcare, education, and necessary social and child protection - rooted in systems resilient to emergencies.
Climate action, natural resources and disaster risk management
People in North Macedonia benefit from ambitious climate action, sustainably managed natural resources and well-preserved biodiversity through good environmental governance and disaster resilient communities
Transparent and accountable democratic governance
People in North Macedonia benefit from improved rule of law; evidence-based, anticipatory and gender-responsive policies; greater social cohesion; and effective service delivery by transparent, accountable and responsive institutions
The 2022 JWPs thus consolidate the activities that will be undertaken by 17 UN entities during 2022. The four outcomes and 19 outputs are implemented through 195 sub-outputs (sum of activities aimed to achieve certain result) as planned by UN entities through their ongoing and pipeline projects or programmes.
