IOM Zimbabwe and the United Nations

IOM Zimbabwe is part of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) and the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT). The UNCT and HCT are the highest level inter-agency coordination and decision making bodies for UN support to the Government of Zimbabwe and humanitarian interventions respectively. Accordingly, IOM participates in the development of emergency response plans which identify, prioritize needs and ensure a coordinated response in emergency situations. Further, IOM participates in the development and implementation of the Zimbabwe United Nations Development Assistance Framework (ZUNDAF), a strategic planning instrument jointly formulated by the UNCT and the Government of Zimbabwe to identify national humanitarian and development priorities.
