The United Nations have assured the people of Zimbabwe that its agencies, funds and programs, will remain open and fully operational besides the challenges facing the country.

“UN entities continue to implement various development and humanitarian activities in support of national development priorities and strengthening of national capacities to achieve socio-economic stability and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

“The United Nations notes with concern the prevailing socio-economic challenges faced by ordinary Zimbabweans and the dire food security outlook prompted by the El Niño weather phenomenon. The United Nations Team continues to monitor the situation in the country closely and remains fully engaged with Government and other partners to find lasting and peaceful solutions,” assured the UN.

The UN said it strongly believes that the current challenges in the country can only be resolved through peaceful and inclusive consultative processes. It said upholding the rule of law and ensuring the protection of human rights of all Zimbabweans at all times is critical for accelerated economic recovery, inclusive growth and sustainable development.

It also affirmed its unwavering support to the country, “The United Nations remains committed to continue supporting the people and Government of Zimbabwe in their quest to implement the Transitional Stabilisation Programme, and the advancement of sustainable, rights-based and inclusive economic growth and development for all, particularly the most vulnerable including children, women and youth.”
