Background
The United Nations in Uganda recently undertook a mid-term review of the current UNDAF and management of the UN system, utilizing the principles provided by the UN Triennial Comprehensive Policy Review, the Paris Declaration and the Accra Agenda for Action and the UN Guidelines on One-UN and Delivering as One.

The conclusions of the review are straightforward: the UN is advancing towards building coherence, increasing effectiveness, relevance and sustainability and contributing to key national outcomes. However, more steps are needed to become a full pledged self-starter of Delivering as One, an intention expressed in a letter sent by the Minister of Foreign Affairs to the UN Secretary General in October 2011.

The UN proposes to advance the five Ones – One Programme, One Leader, One Office, One Budget, and One Voice.   With the One Programme the UN hopes to improve coherence and in preparation for that, the UN Country Team (UNCT) in Uganda proposes to undertake the Action Planning to deliver UNDAF results in the remaining period (2013-2014) of the current UNDAF cycle as One UN. This will be the basis and pilot for the One UN Programme for the next UNDAF cycle when the UN in Uganda will be in full DaO mode.

    *
