Participatory Monitoring for Accountability - Post-2015 Consultation Report
Resident Coordinator’s Annual Report - 2015

2015 began and ended with election activity: the Presidential by-election in January saw a low turnout but was another peaceful democratic transition for Zambia. The Electoral Commission, with support from UNDP and partners, delivered a sound process which withstood challenges from the losing party over vote tallying. Politicians stayed in campaign mode through the year, and were well into election mode by December, looking ahead to the general elections in 2016.

Country Analysis Report
The Country Analysis (CA) for Zambia provides the analytical base for the next Zambia-United
Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework, which will replace the current United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) in 2016. The CA has been jointly
produced by the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in order to ensure alignment of UN efforts with national priorities and internationally agreed goals, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from 2016. The CA will also contribute to preparation of the Seventh National Development Plan.
The CA will guide the UNCT on the key development challenges that the United Nations in Zambia will address, and ensure that the needs of vulnerable and marginalised groups are
addressed.
Sustainable Development Partnership Framework
Zambia has achieved impressive progress over the 50 years since Independence. It has chosen
a peaceful path in consolidating democracy and achieving development. Zambia has played a sustained role in promoting peace in the region and has made an important contribution to global and regional policy and processes, including through its lead role as the current chair of the Landlocked Developing Countries Group, and as co-chair for the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region in the Open Working Group of governments negotiating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Seventh National Development Plan
Zambia has had three development plans since the re-introduction of the medium-term development planning process in the early 2000s, namely the Fifth National Development Plan, 2006-2010 (FNDP), Sixth National Development Plan, 2011-2015 (SNDP) and the Revised Sixth National Development Plan, 2013-2016 (R-SNDP). These Plans were formulated with a view to meeting the national aspirations as articulated in the Vision 2030. These aspirations are to transform the country from a primary product-dependent economy to a strong, dynamic middle income industrialised country by 2030. 
Sustainable Development Goals and Targets (The Booklet)
by 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day
2  by 2030, reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions
 
Rapid Integrated Assessment Report on Zambia 7NDP
The Government of the Republic of Zambia through the Ministry of National Development Planning requested support from UN Zambia to assess the level of alignment of the Seventh National Development Plan (2017-2021) Volume 1. The analysis report is meant to inform the development of Volume 2 – the 7NDP Implementation Plan. 
The development of the national planning documents vis-a- vis the National Vision, medium term development plans and subsequent implementation plans and frameworks has highlighted strengths and constraints in the development planning process. In this view and as aligned to the SDG principles, the formulation of the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP) called for a paradigm shift in its design using the ‘Integrated Development Approach’. This approach is premised on the principle of ‘leaving no-one behind’
Zambia Post 2015 - Report

With a fast-approaching deadline to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015, the United Nations Development Group (UNDG) launched a global consultation on a Post-2015 Development Agenda in a hundred countries at the end of 2012. The UN Secretary-General formed a high level panel of eminent persons to guide and review these results, to come up with an inspiring global agenda for development in the post 2015 period.
