UN Country Team

Sustainable Development Goals

The UN System in Ethiopia is one of the largest in Africa and covers both development and humanitarian assistance. The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Ethiopia is composed of representatives of 28 UN funds and programmes, specialized agencies and other UN entities accredited to Ethiopia as well as representatives of the Bretton Woods institutions

Some of the UN agencies in the UNCT have regional mandate or act as liaison offices to the ECA and the African Union.  

The UNCT supports Ethiopia in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the goals set in the national Growth and Transformation Plan. It does this through its common strategic framework, United Nations Development Assistance Framework in Ethiopia (UNDAF)

The UNCT is led by the UN Resident Coordinator as the senior official of the UN in Ethiopia.
