High Level Tripartite Conference on Delivering as One: Lessons from Country-led Evaluation and Way Forward

The intergovernmental meeting on Delivering as One (DaO) was held on 14-16 June 2010, in Ha Noi, Viet Nam.  The conference was opened by the Minister of Planning from the Government of Viet Nam and Helen Clark as UNDG Chair. Over 260 participants included ministerial/ambassadorial participation from the Pilots; 15 "self-starters"; 22 donors, World Bank, Asia Development Bank, UNDG and the MDTF Office who currently is the Administrative Agent for One UN Funds for 8 pilot and 10 self-starter countries with contributions valued over $395.75 million.

The Statement of Outcome and Way Forward was adopted by the Conference, which concluded that the outcome evaluations undertaken by the DaO UN Pilots have show that the DaO mechanism is nationally led, leading to better alignment of UN operations to national priorities, and bringing enhanced coherence and effectiveness to UN activities and support.

In closing the conference, Dr. Rose-Asha Migiro, the United Nations Deputy Secretary General, stated: “Pilot countries lead the way in operationalising the vision of the UN system at the country level. Many of the successful changes need to be institutionalized in order to be sustainable.” For more information about the tripartite conference visit the UNDG site.
