The United Nations has poured US$1,5 billion into Zimbabwe for various projects and programmes since 2016.
The funds were channelled through the Zimbabwe United Development Assistance Frameworks (ZUNDAF).
This was revealed by acting United Nations Resident Coordinator for Zimbabwe and World Food Programme representative Eddie Rowe.
Speaking during the Zimbabwe Youths Sustainable Development Goals Summit at a local hotel last Friday, Rowe said:
The UN in Zimbabwe, through its five-year strategic framework the 2016-2020 ZUNDAF, has so far delivered US$1,5 billion in various projects and programmes between January 2016 to June 2019 accounting for 62 per cent of official development assistance to the country.
Zimbabwean youth are among the most educated and innovative on the continent, as such emphasis must be placed on developing entrepreneurial skills, access to finance and incentives so that you become employers and create opportunities.
