BACKGROUND

The Common Country Analysis (CCA) is a UN system’s mandate-based independent, impartial, and integrated analysis that provides a holistic picture of the country context.  It sets a baseline and direction for a strategic, human rights-based and risk-informed Country Cooperation Framework. It is thus a critical reference document for benchmarking and assessing the relevance of the Cooperation Framework during its implementation and evaluation. To accurately report on progress against goals and targets, as well as to capture the UN Country Team’s (UNCT’s) contributions, the first priority of the CCA is to establish baselines across the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework, to the extent possible. The Cooperation Framework Strategic Results Groups will use these baselines to track progress against clearly defined outcome level indictors..
