This United Nations Development Framework (UNDAF) is the common strategic framework for the UN system in Belize for the period 2007 – 2011. It will guide UN agencies of the United Nations (UN) in formulating their operational activities in support of the people and
the Government of Belize over this period, and is a roadmap for goals to be achieved in collaboration with them over this period. It attempts to address, realistically, the major development challenges identified in the Common Country Assessment of 2005, which should be read in conjunction with this UNDAF. It benefits from a consultative process with Government, Non-governmental organizations and key technical advisors.

The three programme areas identified for attention in this UNDAF are:
1. Poverty elimination by investing in people
2. Reverse the spread of HIV and AIDS
3. Improve sustainable development practices
