The purpose of the framework is to: i. Provide an overall strategy for the planning, coordination and implementation of the multi-sectoral national response based on available evidence; ii. Articulate national priorities, expected outcomes and targets that all stakeholders should work towards, based on their respective mandates, resources and comparative advantage; iii. Articulate an agreed framework for the implementation of the multi-sectoral response developed in partnership with civil society, private sector, public sector and development partner inputs that is in line with the three-ones principle (one strategy, one coordinating body and one M&E system); and iv.
