UNESCO and UN Reform
The United Nations is reforming itself to provide a better response to the needs of its Member States, in support of national development goals and internationally agreed development goals, through efforts to foster coherence, efficiency and enhanced high-quality delivery. UNESCO is engaged and committed to this reform in order to guarantee Member States access to the full range of competences existing in the UN system.
UN Reform is both a challenge and an opportunity for UNESCO, and is having a major impact on the Organizationís action at the global, regional and country levels.
At the global level UNESCO is an active participant in the global coordination mechanisms of the system, notably in the Chief Executives Board for coordination (CEB) and its three pillars:
- High Level Committee on Programmes (HLCP)
- High Level Committee on Management (HLCM)
- United Nations Development Group
At the regional level UNESCO is taking part in the Regional UNDG Teams
and the Regional Coordination Mechanisms
, which are the first-stop shop for United Nations Country Teams
and provide technical support and guidance to UN agenciesí joint country-level efforts.
At the country-level, UNESCO is putting a strong emphasis on its participation in the work of the respective United Nations Country Teams, in particular when it comes to common country programming exercises.
