The UN System (UN Namibia), in collaboration with the Japanese Government, hosted a launch of joint projects at the Office of the Prime Minister, on the 11th of August 2022.

The projects, aimed at furthering the Sustainable Development Goals, will be supported by the Japanese Supplementary Budget.

The package from the Japanese Government amounts to more than U$3.2 million, and it will be distributed to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

I’m confident that through our integrated, multi-sector approach to development programming, and by drawing upon skills and capabilities from around the region and internationally, UN Namibia will make a lasting contribution to addressing Namibia’s development priorities for the benefit of generations to come

- Mr. Sen Pang, UN Namibia Resident Coordinator.

The projects plan to assist the government of Namibia by providing emergency responses to locust-affected regions, promoting Carbon Markets and mitigating Gender-Based Violence (GBV), among other issues.
