United Nations Development Group Delivering Together for Development
The eight Delivering as One United Nations pilot countries concluded their first year of working together more coherently with a stocktaking exercise.

The stocktaking was done informally at the country level to assess progress, review emerging issues and identify lessons learned. Both the UN Country Teams and the national governments provided assessments, as did some UN agencies.

Realizing that it may be premature to have a full-fledged evaluation of the results of the “Delivering as One” pilots after less than a year since these became operational, the UNDG agreed to undertake an end-of-the-year informal stocktaking of key emerging issues, lessons learned and recommendations.

The objectives of this exercise were to ensure better awareness and understanding by member states and UN agencies of the impact of the pilots on national ownership and leadership, of the new programming and management arrangements being explored in the pilots and to provide input into guidance on the way forward. The results of the stocktaking exercise will also feed into the inter-governmental discussions on System-wide Coherence.

The stocktaking was not part of the formal evaluations of the pilot exercise that will be conducted by the UN Evaluation Group. While each pilot experience was different and clearly reflected the principle that no one size fits all, some general preliminary impressions are highlighted in the reports below.
