United Nations Development Group Delivering Together for Development
UNDG Mandates (TCPR/QCPR)

The UN Development Group derives many of its mandates from the Comprehensive Policy Review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system, a General Assembly resolution that serves as an important instrument for the monitoring and the assessment of UN development operations.

This General Assembly resolution responds to the mandate defined by: (i) the General Assembly which establishes key system-wide policy orientations for the development cooperation and country-level modalities of the United Nations system; and (ii) the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) which provides coordination and guidance to the UN system to ensure that those policies are implemented.
