On 21 December 2012, the UN General Assembly adopted a landmark resolution (67/226) on the quadrennial comprehensive policy review (QCPR) of UN operational activities for development. The QCPR is the mechanism through which the General Assembly assesses the effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and impact of UN operational activities for development and establishes system-wide policy orientations for the development cooperation and country-level modalities of the UN system.

In response to the QCPR, the Secretary-General’s Five-Year Action Agenda and the evolving international development and cooperation environment, the UNDG has agreed on a set of common Strategic Priorities for 2013-2016. The UNDG Strategic Priorities give direction to UNDG efforts at the global, regional and country level to facilitate a step change in the quality and impact of UN support at the country level.
