Management and Accountability Framework of the UN Development and Resident Coordinator System
Resident Coordinator System
The Management and Accountability Framework (MAF) is a foundational piece in the reinvigoration of the Resident Coordinator (RC) system. It provides a clear, unambiguous framework for management and accountability within UN Country Teams, within the regional and global levels, and across the three levels, to ensure a consistent approach across countries in a way that remains faithful to the letter and spirit of the General Assembly resolution on the repositioning of the UN development system. The dual accountability system – at the centre of the reform effort – ensures that country representatives remain fully accountable to their respective entities on individual mandates, while periodically reporting to the RC on their individual activities and on their respective contributions to the results of the UN development system towards the achievement of the 2030 Agenda at the country level, on the basis of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (the “Cooperation Framework”) 1 . "The MAF may be reviewed, as required, to ensure alignment with evolving reform processes and products in order to address issues arising from implementation"
