The UNDAF 2012-2016 seeks to align with national development priorities identified in The Gambia Governmennt's Programme For Accellerated Growth And Employment (PAGE). To ensure  consistency, the  three  pillars  of  the  United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), namely;  Poverty Reduction, Basic Social Services and Governance and Human Rights have been aligned with  some  of  the  PAGE programmes.  

The formulation of the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) drew upon the UNDAF and UNDP CPO, and was prepared in a participatory manner involving a wide range of stakeholders, including the Government, UN agencies, Civil Society and other development partners. The process highlighted the key challenges that are facing The Gambia and identified priority interventions to achieve its development aspirations.

To this  end,  the  CPAP will  be  guided  by  the  need  to  promote and  sustain  inclusive development  in  The  Gambia.  Over  the  programme period,  focus  will  be  on  two outcomes  or programmatic results namely first (Outcome1)  "Capacities of institutions responsible   for  economic   management   and  governance   for  inclusive  growth that benefits  women  and men and evidence based policy formulation and implementation enhanced"   and  second  (Outcome2)   "Sustainable  livelihoods   security  enhanced   for disadvantaged  groups through the  promotion of income  diversification opportunities and better management of  environmental resources".
