UNDP New Deal Implementation Support Facility - Annual Report 2016
This document covers activities of the New Deal Implementation Support Facility in 2016, its third year of full operation. Since inception of the Facility in 2014, many G7+ countries have made significant progress, including new additions, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau receiving Facility funding in 2016. Last year was a period of reconstruction, recovery and coping with recurrent shocks for a number of G7+ countries. That includes Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, which were recovering from the Ebola outbreak; South Sudan and Central African Republic (Car) coping with civil war; Democratic Republic of the Congo (DrC) and Guinea-Bissau managing difficult political transitions; and Afghanistan and Somalia experiencing continued security challenges. The noteworthy progress made in New Deal implementation in these countries under such difficult circumstances is to be commended. This document features relevant information from each Country Office.
