[Added: 2018/10/18] [Last Updated: 2021/12/06]
UNDP CO / IG Cluster 2021/12 Completed Throughout the implementation period of the Programme the cooperation continued, in both identifying the synergies with UN implementing agencies in human rights mainstreaming to activities and projects conducted by Platform’s members and developing the capacities of its members. The Programme’s cooperation does not include only UN agencies, which are involved in the implementation of the One UN JA. For example, the capacity building activities for vulnerable women focusing on gender issues were organised with the involvement of colleagues from UN Women country office. The Programme has established working relations and identified synergies with other projects and programmes implemented in the Transnistrian region, mainly with projects in the area of confidence building, implemented by UNDP, but not only. One example of is the project “Gender Based Violence Cooperation Across the Nistru river”, funded by the UK Embassy/CSSF and implemented by IOM. This resulted in participation of projects’ beneficiaries in Programme’s activities and vice versa, as well as in provision by the Programme Manager of advice on HRBA and vulnerability aspects of the respective projects. Additionally, the Programme is actively cooperating with OSCE in the area of institutional and general capacity building for CSOs and duty-bearers and a working group was established in this respect, which meets on a regular basis. This ensured that there is no overlap in capacity building activities implemented by the respective international organisations. History
