Common Country Analysis for UN Country Office UAE

December 23, 2020

The UN Country Office in the UAE commissioned Triangle to carry out a Common Country Analysis (CCA) of the UAE in the first half of 2021. The analysis was the first of its kind and provided the basis for UN activity and inter-agency work as well as in its contacts and activities with the country’s authorities. In turn the document will be used to develop a coherent, relevant, and transformative Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) with the host government, which needs to be informed by an insightful CCA to help anchor UN engagements in the country.

Triangle’s research team conducted an analysis of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT)’s competitive advantage in the UAE by considering the actionable position of key stakeholders in the country including national, sub-national, local, civil society. Triangle engaged with various members leading the UNCT, as well as key national stakeholders identified during the course of the CCA to conduct a detailed SWOT analysis which feeds into the analysis of competitive advantages and priority setting for the UNCT.  By combining this assessment with the results of the aforementioned analysis, Triangle’s research team developed a hierarchy of priorities and recommendations rooted in real opportunities to develop an achievable UNSDCF in synergy with the SDGs and national goals.
