Development system reform
From Peacekeeping references
Repositioning the United Nations development system is one of the three parts of Secretary-General António Guterres's United to Reform agenda.
It consists of seven elements:
- A new generation of UN country teams to meet the specific development priorities and needs of countries;
- A reinvigorated Resident Coordinator system with stronger capacity, leadership, accountability and impartiality;
- A coordinated, reprofiled and restructured regional approach to better support work on the ground;
- Renewed spaces for Member States to guide system-wide actions and bring greater transparency and accountability for results;
- A stronger UN institutional response and system-wide approach to partnerships for the 2030 Agenda.
- Concrete steps to accelerate the system’s alignment to the 2030 Agenda, through a system-wide strategic document developed by the UN Development Group.
- A Funding Compact to bring better quality, quantity and predictability of resources, increased accountability and transparency and enhanced capacities of the system to deliver on the 2030 Agenda.
