United Nations

in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

For 20 years now, the United Nations has been a partner of the Government and people in the country with the goal to ensure inclusive and sustainable development, based on national priorities and plans.

UN activities are carried out in the framework of the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for 2010-2015. The UNDAF is centered on three key areas: social inclusion, local governance and environmental protection. The work of the UN agencies is supported by the invaluable partnerships we have with Government, donors, local government institutions, national stakeholders, civil society, academia, the private sector and the media.

We currently employ some 120 personnel, mostly national staff, whose skills, knowledge and commitment to the UN’s purpose and mission are an essential contribution to ensure that the United Nations delivers its maximum potential for the country.
