In order to be even more innovative, reactive and efficient in working towards peace, security and sustainable development, the United Nations has embarked upon a reform process known as “Delivering as One”. This initiative defines strategic approaches and new practices of cooperation. It also enables the coordination of UN Agencies to be perfected.
At a time when the question of the efficiency of development aid has become crucial, the “Delivering as One” initiative promotes both better support of sustainable development in the African Continent and the management efficiency required to make achievements sustainable.
Co-written by senior officials of African administrations and experienced practitioners of the United Nations System, this work is the first to tackle the initiative and its implementation in Africa. Through the analysis and the guidelines it provides, this work of reference helps to better understand and measure the kinds of challenges this United Nations reform process seeks to address. It is also an instrument for the fine-tuning of public policies as well as the development of innovative partnerships.
