Joint EC-UNDP Task Force on Electoral Assistance

The EC-UNDP partnership in electoral assistance is unique for its scope, for its achievements and ambitions. It builds on a history of sector experience, specific attention to the lessons learned in previous projects and a mutual understanding of each other’s approaches, roles and capacities.

The partnership is proving to be of increasing value to electoral assistance operations to the beneficiary countries, as it allows to rationalize interventions in the area and leads to better and timelier formulation, implementation and monitoring of projects, and is in line with the concepts of enhanced donor coordination from the Declarations on Aid Effectiveness of Paris 2005 and Accra 2008. The resulting projects are consequently more effective, sustainable and in harmony with overall EU and UN objectives.
