The UNDG has agreed to support both the pilots and UNDAF roll-out countries.
The Management and Accountability Framework of the UN Development and Resident Coordinator System will make the UN a more effective force for development.
The Management and Accountability Framework outlines a concept of governance and accountability for the UN development system and the RC System, including a “functional firewall”.
At the country level, the agreed long-term vision is that the Resident Coordinator will have an equal relationship with, and responsibility to, all UNCT member agencies.
At the regional level, the Regional Directors' Teams will expand over time to be representative of organizations working at the country level. At the global level, the 13-member UNDG Advisory Group now regularly meets at both Principals and ASG/ADG levels, assisting the UNDG Chair.
UN staff benefit from working together and delivering better. Together: We can deliver better support. We can have a stronger voice. We can learn from each other. We can mobilise more resources and use them more effectively.
Together we can achieve more and use our time in more rewarding ways. Working together helps us do more. Working together is part of becoming more effective, efficient and relevant. It can make the UN a better place to work.
Together we can improve our skills, knowledge, assessments, and careers. Working together effectively can improve our performance assessments. Working together can increase our career options.
