UN, Cameroon Ink New Assistance Framework

    The United Nations and Cameroon have signed a revised U.N. Development Assistance Framework, or UNDAF, which allocates $64.53 million worth of development aid for the African country for the 2011-2012 period.

    The revised assistance framework cuts down the United Nations’ priority areas in Cameroon to three from five. This decision was based on the midterm review of the country’s current UNDAF, which covers the period 2008-2012, the Cameroon Tribune reports.

    The revised focus areas are sustainable growth and poverty reduction, jobs creation and social protection, and governance and capacity building.
