Global Context

UNDG and UN Reform

Delivering as One

Way Forward


As countries develop, the world is changing. We have a chance to serve this world.

2005


We also need to adapt the UN development system to new global challenges.


UN funding can only do so much


The average number of donors per country is growing.

1960s

2001-2005


Bilateral aid’s share of total aid has grown much more rapidly.


Core funding for UN development operations is not growing.

Net ODA from all donor countries to multilateral institutions at current prices (millions USD)


UN Expenditure is fragmented.

Share of expenditures on operational activities for development by the UN system in 2008.


Member States have mandated the UN to become more coherent, effective and relevant.


We have the vision and the opportunity to improve the UN development system.


The UN system’s global presence gives it unique advantages in supporting countries.

UN Programme Countries


To deliver better, UN agencies have to think, plan and work together strategically.


The Millennium Development Goals give the UN system a common framework.


The UN needs to leverage its impartial role and focus more on advocacy, coordination, technical assistance and policy advice.


Any questions on the global context for reform?

Any questions on the UNDG and UN reform?


Global Context

UNDG and UN Reform

Delivering as One

Way Forward


Delivering as One is an initiative to increase the UN system’s impact.


The High-Level Panel on UN System-wide Coherence proposed creating pilots.


In 2007 eight pilot countries volunteered to test Delivering as One.


The pilots are applying four principles to Deliver as One.


One Programme provides countries with relevant assistance from the whole UN family


One empowered Leader and Team work together with clear accountability.


One Budgetary Framework uses donor resources strategically in each country.


One Office unites agencies through harmonized business processes and often a UN House.


The pilot stocktaking reports show they are making good progress.

Tanzania: Resident Coordinator’s Office staff with their One Programme.


The pilots are working to resolve many ongoing challenges.

Pilot RCs with the Deputy-Secretary General in 2008.


Country-led Delivering as One evaluations are planned for 2009/10.


Any questions on Delivering as One?


Global Context

UN Reform So Far

Delivering as One

Way Forward


Member states agree on the way forward:

“the continuing and deepening intergovernmental work of the General Assembly on system-wide coherence will focus exclusively and in an integrated manner on ‘Delivering as one’ at country and regional levels, harmonization of business practices, funding, governance, and gender equality and the empowerment of women”


The UNDG is following two tracks to advance reforms.


Donors and the UNDG have created an Expanded “Delivering as One” Funding Window.


The Management and Accountability System for the UN Development and Resident Coordinator Systemwill make the UN a more effective force for development.


The Management & Accountability System outlines governance and accountability and a “functional firewall” for UNDP.

UN system coordination

UNDP programming


Regional Directors' Teams will expand to be more representative of agencies working at the country level.

Africa (West-Central)

Europe & CIS

Africa (East-South)

Arab States

Asia & Pacific

LAC


The UNDG is taking further steps to improve coherence, effectiveness and relevance.


  • The UNDG is creating tools for better UN Development Assistance Frameworks.
