The Annual Country Results Report 2022 captures the progress, achievements and challenges in the implementation of the Cooperation Framework. We have tirelessly pursued policies and programmes that focus on inclusive growth, social equity, environmental preservation and a brighter future for the people and the planet. In 2022, South Africa faced several emerging trends and shocks, ranging from the energy crisis, climate-related shocks, growing income inequality and rising youth unemployment to the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite these, the government, supported by the UNCT and partners, made substantive efforts to boost economic growth, design just energy transition plans, address social issues, build resilience to climate shocks and close the gap created by the pandemic.
The Resident Coordinator, Mr. Nelson Muffuh, on behalf of the UN Country Team would like to convey appreciation to his immediate predecessor Mrs. Nardos Bekele Thomas as well as Dr. Ayodele Odusola who temporarily held the reins for part of 2022.
