We are publishing this newsletter as an exciting year is coming to an end. Our programs are moving along well, and we see a strengthened relationship between the UN and the government. With the revival of the Eritrean De-velopment Partners Forum this year, the UN and devel-opment partners have also formalized a forum for shar-ing and discussing how to best partner with Eritrea in its efforts for self-reliance and development. We aim to strengthen and build on this in 2015.
We hope that the articles inside will give you some insight into the progress of UN activities in Eritrea, and perhaps also stimulate debate on development issues in the country. We are at an exciting cross-roads these days, starting discussion on the post-2015 development agenda in Eri-trea, and trying to learn from the impressive progress achieved in the health MDG’s.
