As one of the first countries globally to ‘Deliver as One’, United Nations Viet Nam embraces the initiative to combine the expertise, experience and capacities of 15 resident and two non-resident United Nations agencies that work within the country. This greater harmonisation of competencies for meeting challenges has allowed United Nations Viet Nam to deliver better results and greater impacts.
2015 was a year of achievement for United Nations Viet Nam, where it played a key role in Viet Nam’s transition from the Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals. In May 2015, United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon inaugurated the new Green One UN House in Ha Noi.
To define and highlight their work, United Nations Viet Nam asked QUO to develop the report as an interactive PDF. This allows the report to be navigated from both the main contents page and from a menu bar at the bottom of each page. The report presents how United Nations Viet Nam unites their programmes with the One Plan, One Budget, One Leader, One Set of Management Practices, One UN Voice, and One UN House. It also presents the current situation of development in Viet Nam and elaborates on accomplishments in 2015 for Unoted Nations Viet Nam’s Three Focus Areas: inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth; access to quality essential services and social protection; and enhanced governance and participation. The report concludes with a section on the financial results for 2015.
The coverage of the Focus Areas reviews the outcomes of the respective initiatives and policies, and includes what agencies were involved, the budget, evaluation insights and summaries of case studies in areas such as climate change and disaster risk management, gender, health care, education, legal systems and social protection. Links to full-length case studies, additional information and related news articles can be found throughout the report for further reading.
The noted evaluation insights are from an independent review of United Nations Viet Nam’s One Plan that was conducted to assess results achieved so far. Findings and recommendations from this exercise are being used to shape the next strategic framework for cooperation between the Government of Viet Nam and the United Nations that will cover the period from 2017-2021.
