Analytical Note, April 2007
One United Nations: placing development front and centre.
This South Centre Analytical Note discusses the key recommendations of the Report on the UN Panel on System-Wide Coherence (UN Doc. No. A/61/583, 20 November 2006). It points out some key issues that will need to be considered by the UN management and UN Member States in their discussions and deliberations on the way forward for the implementation of the report’s recommendations.
It stresses that the UN’s role as the primary global governance institution, including over economic issues, should be maintained by ensuring that its normative analysis and policysetting functions are not adversely affected by a shift towards more operational delivery of development assistance.
