The pillar of governance in the PARPA II (2006-2009) is intended to turn the state apparatus into a machine that stimulates the development of human capital and of the economy. The improvement in the governance system remains an area of focus to the Government and its partners The programme of the decentralization of public finances up to the district level has to be speeded up to materialize the Government’s programme to broaden the base of wealth creation. This decentralization is to be accompanied by the monitoring of priority expenditures at the district level (PARPA II, version of 15 November). The UN within this framework will use existing mechanisms to coordination the UNDAF results both at sectoral level and territorial level (central, province and district).
Alignment and Harmonization and Simplification? The UNCT will coordinate the implementation of programme modalities, including mobilization of resources, monitoring and evaluation. The UNDAF has identified areas where the UN agencies with the Government institution will coordinate. Regular meeting will be held to harmonize and align the implementation of the UNDAF outcomes among UN agencies. The Joint AWP (annual work Plans) will ensure alignment of the implementation of activities that contribute to the attainment of the UNDAF outcome and corresponding Country Programme outcomes. The Programme Aid Partnership (PAP) mechanisms for joint review and evaluation will be used through concerted and co-ordinated participation of UN agencies. Joint-programming modalities to reach the UNDAF results will be used by UN agencies contributing to the joint UNDAF outcome and outputs. The UN will also collaborate with the Partners involved in the area of Governance, the Decentralization and Gender working Group. The UN will cooperate and involved in other relevant working groups.
Monitoring and Evaluation: UN will carry out its monitoring and evaluation activities, in the context of UNDAF monitoring and evaluation activities. This will involve the preparation of semi-annual and annual reports and partner agency support to relevant UNDAF priority areas and outcomes. Particular attention will be paid to the timely preparation of reports, particularly financial reports, and their submission to government and donor stakeholders. The reports should be reviewed by the relevant PARPA working groups or steering committees with a view of assessing the contributions of UN system support to UNDAF outcomes and PARPA objectives. The reports will form part of UNDAF annual reporting processes.

National priorities in the Human Capital Pillar as per PARPA version dated 15 November 2005
Human capital is a key asset for the initiative and engagement of citizens and all institutions of society. Such capacity has to be enhanced permanently, strengthening human rights and, in particular, the rights of children. To this end, priority action areas are education, health, water and sanitation, social services, HIV/AIDS, housing and cross-cutting issues. Through these areas the policies of redistribution of income and wealth are put in place, increasing the immediate welfare of the people, and contributing to lay the foundations to higher efficiency in the work process, expanding the capacity to accomplish and act and ensuring long-term sustainability (PARPA, paragraph 331).
Relevant priorities (PARPA, paragraphs 145 to 155):

Civil Society: Systematically use knowledge, research and M&E to address issues of vulnerabilities and disparities; through the support to the Communication Strategy of the Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC), create demand for quality free primary education; through School Councils improve linkages and support for girls and OVC to access and remain in school.
Bilateral and multi-lateral development partners:Leverage and allocate adequate funds (through FASE) for the identified prioritised sub-sector of the education system (primary education - reduction of disparities, and addressing vulnerabilities); provide financial support and technical assistance.
