Djibouti: UN Development Programme Budgets U.S.$18 Million for Djibouti

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) earmarked nearly $18 million (3.2 billion francs) for work in Djibouti under an agreement signed Tuesday (January 29th) by Minister for International Co-operation Ahmed Ali Silay and UNDP country representative Nicole Kouassi, Djibouti's La Nation reported.

The agreement outlines UNDP's intended operations in Djibouti from 2013-2017, during which funds will go to expanding equitable and inclusive means of development, supporting initiatives that strengthen the economy and represent progress towards the Millennium Development Goals, and providing support for those most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

The ministries and departments responsible for acting on those goals are now tasked with drawing up plans for the work.
