KwaZulu-Natal and UN signed Memorandum of Understanding


Durban, 24 September 2021(TDI): Premier of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa Sihle Zikalala and the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations in South Africa, Nardos Bekele Thomas, signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre, on Wednesday.

The UN in South Africa has committed more than R20 million as catalytic resources to demonstrate UN commitment to the Emergency Response Plan. It comprises R10 million for educational initiatives, R7 million for social cohesion dialogues, and R2 million for Gender-Based Violence shelters in the province.

The MoU identifies priority areas in which the province and UN will collaborate to assist communities and entities as part of the rebuilding efforts.

Premier Sihle Zikalala said we appreciate the UN’s commitment to assisting the Provincial Government of KwaZulu-Natal in rebuilding impacted areas and addressing the underlying causes of the province’s complicated developmental landscape.

Moreover, the Premier of KwaZulu-Natal asserted that after the coronavirus pandemic, we need to construct an inclusive economy. This country has had growth of around 3% for a long time but the difficulty is that the growth did not involve job creation, Premier added.

According to Nardos Bekele-Thomas, Resident Coordinator of United Nations, the United Nations’ intention in providing support through this MoU is to complement the Provincial Government’s ongoing efforts.
