2007 Resident Coordinator Annual Report
February 2009

Dear Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,

Subject: 2008 Annual Report of the UN Resident Coordinator in Cambodia

We are pleased to provide you with a summary of UN activities including progress on UN reform and its application to operational activities in Cambodia. The attached tables summarise the results of 2008 and plans for 2009.

1. The Cambodia context

In 2008, Cambodia continued to consolidate peace and stability, achieving important human development goals and maintaining steady economic growth (6.7% GDP). Democratic national elections took place in July, returning the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) and Prime Minister Hun Sen to a third, consecutive term in office amid concerns of incomplete voter listings from the opposition parties. The elections were the most peaceful to date with the National Election Committee demonstrating stronger capacity. Although the elections did not meet international standards in a number of key areas, participation among women (as both voters and candidates) and young people increased.

Higher food and oil prices coupled with the early signs of the global economic crisis, pushed inflation to 20 percent, exacerbating food insecurity, and stretching the Nation’s limited coping mechanisms to the brim. Cambodia’s staple food item, rice, increased by 100 percent and over half of all households reported cutting back on food to compensate for higher consumption costs. The Cambodian Anthropometric Survey highlighted an increase in acute malnutrition among children from 2005-2008. The Strategic Framework for Food Security and Nutrition, finalised in 2007, was recognizsed as the basis for detailed discussions on national food security and chronic malnutrition.

Higher food prices had a mixed impact on the domestic economy with 34 percent of farmers benefitting and day labour salaries increasing. This prompted rejuvenation of the agricultural sector as a key driver for economic growth. Towards the end of 2008, following reduced demand from US and European markets, 60 garment factories closed and 27,000 (predominantly female) workers lost their jobs. Investment decreased by 12.5% and the construction industry showed some early signs of slowdown. With three out of four sources of income expected to decrease with the global economic downturn, Cambodia’s outlook for 2009 is forecast at between 1-6 percent growth.

Anticipated revenues from offshore oil and gas (projected for 2012) and the extractive industries (minerals, bauxite and gold) are likely to have a significant impact on the economy, the development landscape, and Cambodia’s ability to meet its human development targets. The UN supported High-Level International Conference on Oil and Gas in March 2008 brought together the public and private sector and emphasised sound management, transparency and accountability.

Overall, Cambodia’s young workforce, arable land, abundant natural resources, and strategic location in SE Asia are strengths for sustainable growth. Provided, there is sufficient diversification of industries, better management of natural resources, strengthening of public institutions and increased pro-poor investment, there are good opportunities for further socio-economic development.

On the Human Development side, Cambodia met a number of important national milestones in 2008 including the final promulgation of the Education Law, the second Cambodia Gender Assessment, and The Law on the Suppression of Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation. The latter, attracted strong concern from the UN vis-à-vis improper implementation, allegations of rights abuses and possible interruption to the Kingdom’s highly successful 100% condom use policy in the fight against HIV/AIDS. UN interventions to support the Government to deliver a rights-based, pragmatic implementation of the new law are ongoing. The Government’s Health Sector Strategy commenced in 2008, reflecting commitment to its obligations as signatory to the International Health Partnership.

Continued national ownership of aid coordination mechanisms saw Government lead all coordination of and chair the second Cambodia Development Cooperation Forum (CDCF); preparation of the Annual Aid Effectiveness Report and implementation of recommendations from the 2007 review of the Technical Working Group structure. Overseas Development Assistance pledges totaled $897,355,840 USD with the UN system contributing $100 million USD.

From a governance perspective, the passing of the draft Organic Law in 2008, laid the foundation for steps forward in the consolidation of a national democratic development (D&D) strategy. Care is being taken to ensure gender provisions are enforced and accountability mechanisms are in place. Public Administrative Reforms advance with the finalisation of Anukrat 29 on the standardisation and phase out of salary supplements and the introduction of merit based performance incentives (MBPI). Slow progress towards a national Anti-corruption law and the implementation of key legal, judicial and public administrative reforms remains a regular topic for Government and development partner dialogue. Efforts continued to set up an effective, independent and impartial justice system and facilitate access to justice for all Cambodians.

Democratic governance also saw some erratic progress during 2008 particularly associated with forced evictions and resettlement in the urban areas of Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Battambang. Forced evictions came as a result of continued deforestation, exploitation of valuable agricultural land, increasing urban land prices, inadequate land titling and implementation of the land law as well as continued momentum towards large scale urban property development. The UN Common Viewpoint on Forced Evictions and Resettlements, which outlines Cambodia’s obligations under international treaties and conventions, proved a useful tool for dialogue with government and partners.

Pre-trial proceedings of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia continued with full operations on both the Cambodian side of the court and the UN-backed international side (UNAKRT). Donor funds managed by the UNDP were halted to the Cambodian Administrative side of the court admidst concerns about pre-existing allegations of corruption and misappropriation of funds. UNDP Cambodia has requested an investigation and greater accountability of funds disbursed and the UN has continued dialogue with supporting international donors. The first trial of the ECCC is scheduled to take place in February 2009.

Primary school enrolments reached 93% for males and 91% for females. School retention continues as the key issue, with only 52% completing up to Grade Six. Maternal mortality is alarmingly high with 472 deaths per 100,000 live births and no recorded improvement since 2000. The Government’s National Health Strategic Plan has prioritised reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health for 2008-2015 and the UN system has identified Improving Maternal Health as a system wide advocacy priority for 2009.

Water and Sanitation remain critical issues for Cambodia, with an average 9% of rural households with latrines. The International Year of Sanitation helped to shine a spotlight on the issue, and was celebrated widely across Cambodia, with the Ministry of Rural Development, taking the lead, and the Prime Minister declaring November 13 the National Day of Sanitation.

Cambodia demonstrated its support to the UN and to global peacekeeping efforts by sending a third delegation of Cambodian de-miners to the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS).

National concern around the rising food price crisis and the ongoing vulnerability of Cambodians to economic and other shocks saw dialogue at the highest level of Government. The UN Country Team coordinated the development partner response to Rising Food prices, leading to government endorsement for integrated social safety net strategy under the existing coordination structure of the Technical Working Group for Food Security and Nutrition (TWG FSN). This work is set to continue into 2009.

Summary on progress towards UNDAF outcomes


3. Highlights of progress towards UNDAF outcomes that support national development priorities

In 2008, the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF 2006 – 2010) entered its third year of implementation and underwent its second year annual review process with Government. UNDAF implementation in Cambodia has impacted positively on the UN’s common programming capacity and joint review processes and created an opportunity to annually monitor real results. The significant progress in 2008 is summarised within each of the UNDAF’s four strategic priorities:

I. Good Governance and the promotion and protection of Human Rights II. Advice and assistance was provided in the drafting and implementation of laws in line with Cambodia’s constitution and its commitments under international treaties. Community capacity development and dissemination of information and education materials increased awareness of national laws and international human rights instruments including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, indigenous people’s rights, workers rights, civil rights, the Education Law and Teacher Professional Code, Cambodia Gender Assessment, and alternative dispute resolution skills. Public access to information and participatory and accountable planning and management of local development activities were facilitated. The UN system mobilised $USD 6 million from donors to fund and coordinate the elections. Voter education targeting, youth participation and female representation were emphasised in the lead up to the national elections. Close collaboration with government systems and institutions increased workers and employers capacity. Draft legislation and institutions relating to juvenile justice were supported through advice, training and capacity building. Decentralised and de-concentrated governance was supported through the elaboration of draft laws and guidelines on sub-national government bodies, covering issues of fiscal decentralisation and through strengthening of decentralised management of public goods, with particular emphasis on increasing access for women and children to such commodities and services. Cambodia submitted its initial report to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, overdue since 1994. The UN supported the Government’s effort through technical advice and assistance. Civil society was also supported in the preparation of a parallel report. Agriculture and rural poverty. The UN System provided ongoing support to Arbitration Council, Cambodia’s only statutory alternative dispute settlement body. UNDAF results in this area ensured coordinated support for formulation and finalisation of the National Agriculture and Water Strategy 2006-2010. Capacity development in this area empowered local communities to better protect natural resources against illegal activities. Mine action increased land availability to the rural poor through the clearance of 6750 anti-personal mines and the education of over 1 million school children on mine risk. Integrated farming systems were successfully introduced in 10 provinces and farmer’s group businesses increased daily income by almost three times through the use of environmentally friendly technology. National emergency preparedness was facilitated through increased support to the National Committee for Disaster Preparedness, implementation of the UN Joint Programme on Avian and Human Influenza, update of the UN Disaster Management Plan, and support for finalisation of the National Comprehensive Plan for Avian and Human Influenza. Response to natural and man made shocks was addressed through support to the Ministry of Health and better coordination between provincial health, education, rural ministries and the National Committee for Disaster Management.

III. Capacity Development and Human Resources Development for the Social Sectors Strong common programming in the social sectors is reaping real rewards in national strategy development. Access to primary and lower secondary education increased, with a narrowing gender gap. The quality of teaching, the learning environment and the education curriculum improved. The UN jointly supported a Youth Situation Analysis to inform development of a National Youth Policy and strategic UN framework on youth. The Ministry of Education Youth and Sport’s institutional and staff capacity was strengthened to better manage, deliver and monitor education services, with special consideration for disadvantaged and marginalised groups (including children with disability and Orphans and vulnerable children). There was been increased technical assistance and support for development of the health sector strategy 2008 – 2015, health financing strategy and reproductive health commodity security strategy and action plan. There has been on going support for implementation and costing of the Child Survival and Reproductive and Sexual Health Strategies, and technical support for developing better linkage between reproductive health and HIV services. Multi sectoral coordination of the HIV response has improved and awareness raising campaigns among the general public have created increased public attention to key population issues including information and services on reproductive health and rights. Social service providers, community leaders and government staff, at national and sub national levels, have been trained on women and children’s rights and their role in delivery of key basic social services including education, protection, HIV prevention and health. The Joint UN Team on HIV and AIDS has supported the development of a number of national strategic plans including the Ministry of Women’s Affairs Strategic Plan on Women, The Girl Child and HIV/AIDS in Cambodia, and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport Strategic Plan for HIV. The legal framework to prevent domestic violence has been established and capacity for law enforcement strengthened. Awareness raising on violence against women and children conducted at national and sub national level and the situation of domestic violence and child labour in Cambodia are better understood. The UN will work with the Ministry of Health’s fast track initiative to accelerate progress in the areas of reproductive, maternal and newborn care. The UN also supported the inter-Ministerial Taskforce on migration, which guided the drafting of a standardised contract for migrant workers. UN support to the Cambodian National Council of Women, helped develop a preliminary set of legislative indicators on four laws (Marriage and Family, Prevention of Domestic Violence and Protection of Victims, Law on the Suppression of Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation and Labour Law) for compliance with the CEDAW.

IV. Development of the National Strategic Development Plan (NSDP) Programming within the context of the UNDAF 2006-2010 ensured that steps were in place to provide coordinated support to the implementation of the NSDP. Clear steps are in place to support implementation of a Programme Based Approach for Ministry of Planning through the Technical Working Group on Planning and Poverty Reduction. There has been support for national capacity development in monitoring of progress through M&E strengthening, analysis and reporting with a focus on CMDGs. There has been continued effective and coordinated participation in the government lead Harmonisation and Alignment (H&A) agenda at national and selected sectoral Technical Working Group levels, future focus is needed on support to operationalising H&A at a sectoral level.

Summary on progress in UN Reform


2. Progress on UN reform in Cambodia

Central to the advancement of UN Reform in Cambodia has been the consistent good will and positive approach of the UN Country Team towards UN cohesion and UN coordination.

Achievements made in 2008 • The UN Pandemic Simulation tested the UN Country Team’s response to a pandemic across management, health, operations, communications, and security sectors. • The UN Communications and Advocacy strategy has strengthened inter-agency coordination and kick started the UNCT’s annual formulation of two advocacy points. In 2008/9 Maternal Mortality and Equity are have been developed as advocacy priorities. The development of UN common viewpoints assisted the UN to lead donor alignment around key issues of substance. In 2008, common understanding around human rights issues of forced evictions and the Rising Food Price Crisis were supported by this joint work. The Joint UN Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Human Rights demonstrated the power of speaking with one UN voice and culminated in a wonderful cultural celebration on International Human Rights Day, attended by government, donors, civil society organisations, youth groups, children and televised prime time on the national broadcaster. Joint Programmes in Avian & Human Influenza and HIV/AIDS have shown that the UN working together is critical for effective coordination on multi-sectoral themes. UN Joint frameworks support alignment of the UN’s sectoral priorities, increase inter-agency information sharing, and reduce duplication. In 2009, development of a UN Youth Strategy will follow the successful model of joint programming in the above thematic areas. Increased inter-agency collaboration in programming for Gender Based Violence will strengthen alignment with national priorities. The Spanish MDG Achievement Fund and its priorities for UN reform have facilitated further inter-agency collaboration. The 3-year $USD 3 million ‘Culture and Development programme’ brings together 4 UN agencies, and 5 Government line ministries to enhance Cambodia’s dynamic creative and cultural industries • In 2008, the UN has supported the wider aid effectiveness agenda by speaking with one voice at Government/Development Partner forums and actively engaging in the coordination mechanisms of the Joint Donor Government Technical Working Groups (TWGs) (facilitating eight out of 19). Sector wide approaches (SWAPS) in Health, Education and Planning and Poverty reduction continue to strengthen levels of UN cohesion within sectors and with other development partners. • UN priorities for increased common service reform continue, and are aimed at minimising administrative burdens on government and increasing efficient and cost effective ways of working for the UN. • The UN Country Team Retreat held in September 2008 provided a valuable opportunity for members of the country team to review achievements, identify emerging risks, and consolidate UN system priorities for 2009.

Operational reforms in 2008: • Development of a UN Learning Programme based on a UN system learning needs assessment. • Strengthening of the Operations Management Team (OMT) with representatives now from each UN agency meeting monthly to advance operational reform. • Continued oversight of the roll out of Harmonised Approaches to Cash Transfers (HACT). Micro assessments will provide vital guidance in management of common cash flow system with a large part of the UN system. • More efficient, shared procurement practices and establishment of additional common services including security, IT, and UN wide long-term agreements with third party contactors. • Emergency preparedness and response in the context of UN staff health and safety. • Analysis of future operations of the UN Dispensary which lead to a UNCT decision to implement a UN reform plan focusing on health promotion and preventative care. • Finalisation of plans for common premises for UN agencies including identification of an available site and detailed space allocation and cost sharing. RC-lead task force established to implement detailed next steps forward.

The UNDAF 2006-2010 is the guiding document for the UN system in Cambodia. The second Joint UNDAF Annual Review with Government focused on delivery of development results and joint UN efforts to increase UN/Government collaboration. Key recommendations include: • Coordinated UN efforts to support attainment of national joint monitoring indicators (JMIs). • Assertion of UN alignment with Government policy (Anukrat 29) on harmonisation and phase out of salary supplements (merit based pay incentives). • UN priority given to address gender and other vulnerabilities and disparities. • Further UN coherence through increased UN harmonisation and concrete strategies of reform. • 2009 Joint UNDAF review to discuss in depth the UNDAF 2011 – 2015 and its continued alignment with an extended National Strategic Development Plan 2006 – 2013. • UN to actively engage in cyclical validation of ODA data and support the process of alignment of Government instruments for aid management, national planning and budget.

UN alignment with and support to the National Strategic Development Plan (NSDP) 2006-2010 Following the national elections of 2008, the Government will extend the NSDP to 2013 in line with Government’s Rectangular Strategy Phase II. Through co-facilitation of the TWG Planning and Poverty Reduction and in collaboration with co-facilitating partner the World Bank, the UN will partner Government to prepare the NSDP extension 2006–2013. Concrete support to NSDP implementation during 2009 will include:

• Active support for collection and analysis of critical development data at both the national and sub-national level. The UN has supported the 2008 Population census as well as capacity development at the National Institute of Statistics and the General Directorate of Planning. This work will ensure a functioning national CMDG based monitoring and evaluation system. Continued development and training in the use of CAMinfo, the country specific DEV-info. • Provincial level awareness raising of the National Strategic Development Plan • Through direct dialogue with national partners and participation in the Government-Donor Joint Technical Working Group on HIV/AIDS, the UN has actively supported the government’s advancement from the NSDP framework to the National Strategic Plan for a Comprehensive and Multisectoral Response to HIV/AIDS, emphasising comprehensive targets for Universal Access to prevention, treatment and care. • The UN system’s continued advocacy of the CMDGs as key indicators of national development, and associated advocacy in the public realm on key socio-economic issues of the NSDP (eg: poverty level and location; child and maternal health; primary education and HIV/AIDS) has spotlighted key issues and consolidated annual joint monitoring indicators in these areas. This has also reinforced the NSDP as the Government’s prime policy tool to measure both social and economic progress. • The ongoing co-facilitation (with the World Bank) of the Technical Working Group for Planning and Poverty Reduction (TWG PPR) has ensured awareness raising of the NSDP at the provincial level; M&E training to positively inform annual NSDP monitoring, drafting and dissemination of the Mid Term Report (MTR); and the Ministry of Planning’s development of a Strategic Framework and annual operational plan and budget around which a programme based approach of donor support is being built. • Comprehensive needs assessment of the Ministry of Planning commenced in 2008 supporting the development of a capacity development plan in 2009. • A special focus on Cambodia’s commitments under international human rights treaties, which currently includes ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons, implementation of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and follow up to the reporting to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Technical assistance aimed at supporting the administration of justice and the rule of law will continue, as will support to civil society and non-governmental organisations engaged in the protection and promotion of human rights, including rights to land and housing.

Key aspects of the proposed 2009 workplan


4. Key aspects of the 2009 work plan

2009 will be an opportunity for the UN Country Team to advance is priorities for UN cohesion, to consolidate implementation of the UNDAF 2006-2010, support CMDG attainment, and commence the planning cycle for the UNDAF 2011-2015. The 2009 work plan prioritises increased harmonisation in programme delivery, operational continuity, aid effectiveness and UN coordination. The UNCT will collaborate under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinator and the Cambodian Government and in partnership with other development partners and civil society.

Some specific highlights within the 2009 work plan include:

- A coordinated focus on the Global Economic Crisis and Rising food price crisis and its implications on the most vulnerable. Within this work, the UN will seek to be a collaborative and meaningful partner and will champion the human development aspects of the economic downturn.

- Advancing the programmatic side of UN reform through: joint programming including existing Avian and Human Influenza and HIV/AIDS but expanding the MDG Fund supported areas of Culture and Development (Creative Industries) and Children, Food Security and Nutrition; Democratic Development; Gender; Economic Development and Trade. Exploring new joint programme areas in Gender Based Violence, Youth, Social Protection/Social Safety Nets and Agriculture will be a priority.

- Active engagement in Cambodia’s aid effectiveness mechanisms through facilitation of eight out of 19 Joint Technical Working Groups in collaboration with Government and other development partners. Leading dialogue on Human Development priorities of the National Strategic Development Plan at key Government/Development Partner gatherings, namely the quarterly Government Donor Coordinating Committee (GDCC) and the annual Cambodia Development Coordination Forum (CDCF). Bringing substantive development and human rights issues to donor coordination and leading Government/donor dialogue on the food price crisis and social safety nets.

- Continued support for implementation of the NSDP, including UN facilitation of the Joint Technical Working Groups for Planning and Poverty Reduction, Food Security and Nutrition, Agriculture and Water, Health, Education, HIV/AIDS, Gender and therefore the UN’s common programming around the Ministry of Planning Strategic Plan, Education and Health Sector Strategies, the National HIV/AIDS strategy.

- Development of the 2011-2015 Common Country Assessment and UNDAF involving Government, None Government Organisations, civil society (including youth) and the private sector.

- Increased alignment of UN reform priorities with national development goals, national aid effectiveness priorities and international Paris declaration principles including a UN position with regard to the Accra Agenda for Action, through a process of benchmarking to support annual goal setting and review of targets for the UN Country Team.

- Maintaining a focus on the promotion and protection of human rights and the rule of law to strengthen UN system programming including the facilitation of broader donor alignment around key issues including land, evictions and forced resettlement and strengthening UN assistance to the Government to help it meet Cambodia’s treaty reporting obligations. Support civil society and non-governmental organizations in the protection and promotion of human rights.

- Operations Management Team building strategic approaches to common services, maximising economies of scale and building the 2007 – 2010 common services strategy.

- Launching of the UN Learning Programme based on identified needs assessment, supporting the UNCT’s UNCARES obligations to staff and dependant training on HIV/AIDS and the UNCT’s broader UN reform agenda. Supporting UN staff capacity building and professional development to ensure maximum operability within the Cambodia context and within a reforming and increasingly cohesive UN system.

- The Disaster Management, and Crisis Management Teams supporting Government’s capacity for disaster risk reduction. Testing of existing plans. Implementation of recommendations from the 2009 UN Disaster Assessment Committee (UNDAC) mission to Cambodia.

- The UN communication and advocacy strategy will build upon the successes of 2008 and effectively position the UN on core issues. 2009 advocacy points ‘Maternal Mortality’ and ‘Equity’ actions through targeted agreed campaign strategies and development of common advocacy points for 2010.

- Increasing the focus on youth through the continued coordination work of the UN Youth Officer, work planning of the now established UN Youth Advisory Panel, and the finalised UN Youth Situation Analysis. Increasing dialogue between the UN, Government and Young people, guiding the formulation of a UN Youth Strategy and finalisation of multi-sector National Youth Policy.

Recommendations


5. Field recommendations for changes in corporate policies, rules and regulations

As a country team we provide a number of recommendations for consideration by HQ colleagues. We have considered these in the context of the UN’s support for development efforts in Cambodia and enhancing progress toward UN reform. We suggest the following:

- Continue the practice of one annual report to the Secretary General per year in the current format but revise the effectiveness of combining the UNCT work plan with the RC/UNCT Assessment. We continue to see this as a useful opportunity to reflect on the year and present future plans however, the inclusion of the RC/UNCT Assessment considerations tends to skew joint UNCT work planning and dissect an otherwise joint planning process.

- In line with Paris principles and the recent Accra Agenda for Action, we recommend continued efforts to ensure coordinated and, where possible, joint UN missions to the field reducing impacts on country level UN colleagues and their respective host governments.

- To support increased country level cohesion (particularly in the areas of operational continuity and common service reform) we seek continued inter-agency review of current policies and practices to ensure they facilitate rather than obstruct country level reform efforts. A UN Country Team’s efforts to develop common approaches to a range of operational and programmatic issues should be supported by harmonised and complimentary policies across the UN system. In some contexts currently, certain aspects of country level cohesion are prohibited by conflicting policies at agency level.

- Annual updates from HQ on funding trends and policy priorities of international donors as they relate to prioritised support for UN cohesion would inform resource mobilisation efforts at a local level. The annual dissemination of the donor report produced annually by UNDGO would support this request and increase strategic approaches to donors at all levels of the UN system.

- Further revision of guidelines and policies around joint programming to clearly define the different roles and responsibilities of the UN Resident Coordinator as distinct from the UNDP Country Director. The revision of the joint programme management oversite structure will reduce the need for separate project based coordination structures increasing the opportunity to roll joint programme monitoring requirements into Annual Joint UNDAF review processes. Current policy does not provide sufficient clarity regarding the role of the Resident Coordinator as distinct from the programmatic and operational responsibilities of UNDP nor articulate the programme based approaches to joint programme monitoring in relation to annual UNDAF monitoring cycles.

- Regional initiatives involving implementation at a country should be developed in consultation with UN Country Teams and through them to national counterparts, at the concept stage of planning. Current practice often includes bilateral dialogue with national governments and no consultation at all with UN Country Teams prior to approval and implementation planning, which increases the risk of duplication of efforts, conflict with identified national development priorities, sidelining of scarce human resources or regional strategies running contradictory to agreed national priorities.

- Continued information sharing around strategic issues of UN reform in both UN reform pilot and non pilot countries and increased communication between UNDGO and Resident Coordinators in support of a continued and increased focus system wide on issues of UN reform..

In conclusion we wish you well in this continued environment of challenge and opportunity for international development and poverty reduction, and extend an invitation for you to visit this country where we see such great potential.

Yours sincerely

Douglas Broderick UN Resident Coordinator

CP Results Recommendations to DGO
Development and implementation of a 2009 UN inter-agency Learning Programme.

Transaction costs:predicted cost of the 2009 programme: USD 15,200 (from the cost share contributions collected for each agency on a staff numbers basis in 2008)
Achievements:Inline with UN reform and working as one, the strategic framework for common UN Learning in Cambodia was established in response to staff needs assessment conducted in early 2008. The programme activities, which will take place throughout 2009 include UN reform, aid effectiveness, communication, M&E/results based management, programme based approaches, UN orientation, right based approaches to programming, HIV/AIDs training, stress and time management and UNCT management training.
Lessons learned:
Under the guidance of the joint UN Communications and Advocacy Strategy, the UN Country Team agreed to develop two common advocacy messages for system-wide outreach throughout the year. Each Head of Agency committed to repeat at least one of the two advocacy messages in all public communication (speeches, publications, campaigns, media comments), finding the link between their agency mandate and the advocacy priority.

The purpose of the common advocacy messages was to create a critical mass around issues of concern to the UN Country Team, (issues which were not receiving attention in the media or other for a) leading to specific and targeted action by various different audiences.

In developing the messages, the UN Country Team considered:

Part 1. Messaging Development- UN Country Team

v What are the priority issues for the UNCT in 2008?

v Who is our target audience?

v What is their perception of this issue?

v What do we want achieve from this message?

v What message will meet this objective?

v Who will communicate this message?

The UN Communications Group was then asked to develop the messaging campaign, in close collaboration with all UN agencies working in Cambodia.

Part 2. Messaging Implementation- UN Communications Group

v Elaboration of Messages and Pre-testing

v Supporting Material Fact Sheet

v Tailored Advocacy Campaign Design

v Measurement & Evaluation

Results: Effectiveness/savings or increased costs as a result of coordination practice.

The joint advocacy messages came at no additional cost to the UN Country Team. The accompanying joint advocacy campaigns were funded by the joint UN communications budget, managed by the Office of the Resident Coordinator.

Transaction costs:as above rationale Recommendations The common messaging process is made easier if there is a dedicated communications officer, who can coordinate with the UN Country Team and UN Communications Group. For campaign activity, a joint communications budget is paramount.
Achievements:Achievements: The UN Common Advocacy Message on Equity “Growth with Equity is Prosperity for All” helped to coordinate donors and development partners around the issue of social safety nets- the advocacy objective. This work led to a joint development partner presentation at the 2008 Cambodia Development Cooperation Forum; government support for social safety nets at the highest levels and a preliminary research mission by the World Bank and World Food Programme. This work is ongoing. Notably, the advocacy on Equity and Social Safety Nets was done before the impacts of the global economic crisis were being felt in Cambodia, meaning that the Cambodian Government had already been sensitized to social safety nets as a policy recommendation against economic and other shocks. This has paved the way for dialogue and responsive action which prioritizes the most vulnerable and builds future esilience. The UN Common Advocacy Message on Maternal Health “No Woman Should Die Giving Life” helped to shine a spotlight on the lowest performing MDG in Cambodia, maternal mortality, placing this issue firmly on the national development agenda and consolidating UN agency efforts for gender equality, nutrition, human rights, reproductive health, antenatal health care, promotion skilled birth attendants and emergency health services within one common advocacy framework. The Ministry of Health named Maternal Health as its number one priority for 2008-2010, creating a fast-track initiative to prioritize maternal health in rural areas. The advocacy message regularly features in local news reportage and has been adopted by the National Parliament. Key advocacy initiatives including a midwifery forum, theatre production, and documentary film are scheduled for the year.
Lessons learned:Lessons Learned Joint UN advocacy demonstrates the combined strength of the UN system. There is considerable expertise within the UN family and joint advocacy is an excellent way of coordinating information in a targeted and results orientated way. If managed well, common advocacy can substantially support programmatic goals; produce genuine development results and strengthen the profile of the UN in country. UN Country Teams should be guided through this process by an experienced communications professional with strong leadership from the UN Resident Coordinator. Some agencies are likely to be more receptive than others, however all UN agencies should be encouraged from the beginning of this process to find the link between their work and the messages- there will always be one.
Coordinated UN response to the Rising Food Price Crisis (UN position paper attached as supporting documentation to this review). The intended purpose was to 1. increase UN coordination around the rising food price crisis 2. give equal voice to issues of a. emergency food response b. social vulnerability to economic shocks (the need for social safety nets) c. need for support of medium to long term agriculture sector development; 3 to present in matrix for the range of donor responses to the crisis, the money raised and government partners engaged.

Transaction costs:Transaction cost were by far weighed out by the benefits of such collaboration. continued promotion of RC role as convenor of development responses to key development challenges. Clarification within the UN of the UN's distinct comparative advantage in the face of the Rising Food Price Crisis and the broader Global Economic Crisis. Distinct from comparative advantage, for instance of the World Bank and the IMF.
Achievements:UN positioned as a facilitator of coordinated UN and broader donor responses. UN advocating for increased harmonisation and alignment of support to national priorites. reduced duplication and reduced gaps in response to the crisis. Recognition by Government and development partners for the need to priorities the development of an integrated strategy response to social safety nets and social protection. Use of the Cambodia UN position paper by HQ and other UN country teams to achieve simular response. Accompanying media release raising awareness in key media on the issues in Cambodia and the UN"s key role.
