Making the UN System more coherent, effective and efficient.

When the Secretary-General launched Delivering as One, the governments of eight countries—Albania, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Pakistan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uruguay, and Viet Nam—volunteered to become “Delivering as One” pilots. The pilot countries agreed to work with the UN system to capitalize on the strengths and comparative advantages of the different members of the UN family. Together they are experimenting with ways to increase the UN system’s impact through more coherent programmes, reduced transaction costs for governments, and lower overhead costs for the UN system.

Based on the intergovernmental mandate of the QCPR (General Assembly resolution 67/226), the Five-Year Action Agenda and reports from the Secretary General and the findings of the Independent Evaluation of Lessons Learned from “Delivering as one” (DaO), the UNDG is working on ensuring that the second generation of “Delivering as one” is firmly focused on results, strengthened accountability, monitoring and evaluation, and improved outcomes. 

The QCPR requests the UN development system to provide programme countries that choose to adopt the Delivering as One approach with an integrated package of support comprising Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). Please see the SOPs section for updated information.
