“The Cooperation Framework reaffirms the shared vision and partnership between the Government of Turkmenistan and the UN system. It expresses collective aspirations for a prosperous, inclusive, and resilient Turkmenistan. It envisions that the country, by 2025, will make a significant progress in achieving its national development goals aligned with the SDGs with the UN support within the following three strategic priorities:
“A distinctive feature of the new Cooperation Framework is its vivid focus on the development of comprehensive partnerships to achieve the goals of the Program. Particular attention will be paid to building the partnership with civil society and private sector, whose innovative potential will be useful to achieve the objectives of the Cooperation Framework. The UN strategic partnership with financial institutions and development banks will help create conditions for stimulating entrepreneurship and attracting foreign direct investment. The UN in Turkmenistan will continue to cooperate with national partners in the field of human rights, namely with the Interdepartmental Commission of Turkmenistan to implement international human rights obligations”.
“The UN Development Program took an active part in the development of all three strategic areas of cooperation between Turkmenistan and the UN for the next 5 years, as well as in determining all 5 strategic results. This indicates the scale of the ongoing partnership between Turkmenistan and UNDP in such important areas as economic diversification, the rule of law, human rights, healthcare, social integration, climate change, energy efficiency, disaster risk reduction and many others”.
“The overall goal of the new UNICEF country programme of cooperation for 2021 – 2025 is to support the Government in meeting its commitments to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of children, as stipulated by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the SDGs, and further reaffirmed in the National Plan of Action for Children. This new programme of cooperation highlights UNICEF’s ambition to leave no child behind and focus on the most vulnerable children in the country and support the government and society overall in providing all children in Turkmenistan the best possible start in life”.
“For a clear understanding of our new cooperation program and how the selected priority areas will affect the development of our entire society, we need to think about a girl from Turkmenistan who is 10 years old. When a girl is able to exercise her rights, maintain her health, complete her education, and make decisions about her own life, she - and everyone around her - wins. If her health is better, and if she later starts a family, her children will also be healthier. She will be more productive, earn more money and, in turn, change our country and the world for the better. Any commitment to the well-being of a 10-year-old girl depends on the availability of quality statistics on young adolescents, the gender norms and parents ' attitudes towards health education at schools, mental health, quality of education, participation in decision-making, and other issues. In many ways, the future life path of every 10-year-old girl from our country, whether she lives in the city or in rural areas, whether she has a disability or not, will be a true test of the success of the 2030 Agenda, as well as the effectiveness of our country program”.
“Universality and equity are central to each of our goal and each our collaboration in the areas of Non- communicable diseases, communicable diseases, mother and child, environut health and of course so vividly present in our work preparedness, surveillance and control of epidemics and health affecting disasters. For the latter we are sure that joint collaboration on COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response which is our global responsibility will further strengthen global health preparedness”.
