2007 Resident Coordinator Annual Report
Major development and political events

By early 2008, China had already overtaken Germany to become the world’s third largest economy. It contributed 22% of world economic growth in 2008 (a figure expected to rise to 50% in 2009). GDP growth reached 9% in 2008, down from 13% in 2007, largely due to a sharp downturn in the fourth quarter, by when the impact of the global financial crisis began to be felt. The slump in global demand, combined with a slowdown in domestic property and construction and excess capacity in some other industries, have already led to 20 million poor migrant workers in China’s cities losing their jobs. Even before the crisis, the income and human development inequalities between rural and urban areas, and between regions, continued to widen: the ratio between average urban and rural incomes rose from 3.33 in 2007 to 3.36 in 2008. The Government has reduced its target for GDP growth in 2009 to 8%, while many commentators are forecasting growth of 6 to 7%. Though the latter would be high by global standards, it would fall far below the growth levels which have sustained China’s development and reduced the proportion of its still growing population living in poverty in recent years, prompting concerns from some commentators about social stability in 2009.

That said, China is in a better position to weather the crisis than almost any other major economy, thanks to its fiscal position and stable banking sector. In November, it launched a $585bn stimulus package. It has also loosened monetary policy, raised VAT rebates to exporters, supported the property market and core industries, and is pushing forward with important reforms to health and social security provision.

Meanwhile, in May 2008 China suffered its largest natural disaster for many years. The Wenchuan earthquake, measuring 8.0 on the Richter scale, left almost 70,000 people dead and over 17,000 missing, over 300,000 injured, and 5 million homeless. An estimated additional 10 million people fell below the poverty line as a result of the earthquake. Later in the year, the Beijing Olympics were a great success both for the organizers and for the Chinese national team. In addition, they provided an opportunity for China to make sustainable improvements in a wide range of fields, with considerable support from the UN (as set out below).

Through 2008, China’s global impact and influence continued to grow. China has continued to rapidly expand the scale of its trade and south-south cooperation with Africa. And as the second largest trading partner of Latin America, China joined the Inter-American Development Bank, investing USD 350m. Meanwhile it has devoted considerable energy to the global climate change negotiations, while upgrading its State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA) to ministry-level, and issuing a Climate Change White Paper in October 2008 outlining key new principles, policies and plans.

Summary on progress towards UNDAF outcomes


Progress towards UNDAF outcomes

Given the magnitude of the Wenchuan earthquake, both the Government and the Country Team decided to focus efforts for much of the year on the humanitarian response, the early recovery process, and preparations for longer-term reconstruction. This work, under UNDAF Outcome 3, was led by the UN China Disaster Management Team. The Wenchuan earthquake in fact represented the first occasion in recent times that China had requested international assistance. Though China’s own response to the earthquake was extraordinary in terms of scale and speed, the Government called upon the UN as a source of global best practice, and as an indication that China was willing to open up to international partnership, transparency and scrutiny.

In the initial relief phase, the UN delivered emergency material assistance through the CERF totaling over $8m. Subsequently, the UN China Appeal for Early Recovery Support was launched, and attracted over $18m in contributions from the international community for programmes involving 13 UNCT and non-resident Agencies. As attention turned to reconstruction, the UN again came together to organize with Government an international workshop on Post-Earthquake Reconstruction Experiences. This brought 22 leading experts and practitioners from six countries to Beijing to advise Government on best practices in ‘Building Back Better’. Furthermore, once the Government had released its draft reconstruction plan, it sought and was given one UN-wide set of comments. As a result of this collaboration, China’s reconstruction exercise, which is now underway using primarily China’s own resources, has benefited from many of the vital lessons learned elsewhere.

Just a few months after Wenchuan came the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics, where the UN delegation was led by USG Lemke. The UNCT took the Olympics as an opportunity to leave a positive, sustainable legacy for the Chinese people. To give a few examples of the UN’s work: the UN brought children affected by AIDS to an Olympic summer camp, and sponsored an international Olympic Youth Camp; helped make this a ‘Green Olympics’, bringing green technology into the Olympic venue construction, seeing UN-sponsored pioneering electric buses used to carry athletes to and from the Olympic Village, and supporting the use of eco-friendly plastics; helped train the hugely popular Olympic volunteers, and in so doing promoted the spirit of volunteerism in China; collected athletes’ surplus sportswear, and gave it to refugee children in some of the world’s poorest and most war-torn countries; ran training on sports ethics and anti-doping; organized HIV awareness courses for the migrant workers building the venues, the Olympic volunteers, and the athletes, and distributed free condoms; and helped make sure the Games were smoke-free, and that there were no disease outbreaks or food safety crises, and in doing so helped bring about long-lasting changes.

In a year with these two major events, it is to the great credit of the UN Country Team that much of its important work in other areas continued to forge ahead. Under UNDAF Outcome 1 (Improved Social and Economic Policies), as well as beginning implementation of two of the above-mentioned major new Joint Programmes on culture-based development and on young migrant workers, and launching the new landmark National MDG Progress Report at a special event in New York during the High Level Event on the MDGs in September 2008, the UN hosted with Government a first International Poverty Day Forum in October. Government has now committed to making this an annual event, and has, as a result of the Forum, sought the UN’s input to its planning for the next stage in China’s pro-poor development: the complete elimination of poverty from China. 2008 also saw the launch of a new National Human Development Report, on the critical issues of access to basic social services. Meanwhile, the UN’s flagship Advanced Leadership initiative was expanded, offering leadership training to Chinese Ministers. And, toward the end of the year, the UN co-hosted a timely International Finance Forum, dealing with emerging issues related to the global financial crisis.

Gender is an important cross-cutting issue in the UNDAF. A major focus this year was an advocacy campaign, taken forward through events on International Womens’ Day and Elimination of Violence against Women Day. The Gender Theme Group’s China Gender Facility (CGF) saw its existing programmes already feeding into Government policy-making, while a new round of proposals was agreed. The success of the CGF also enabled it to attract considerable additional donor funds through 2008.

On UNDAF Outcome 2 (Policy Implementation in the Social Sectors), in November the UNCT as a whole submitted comments and proposals in response to the Government’s draft health sector reform plan. The UN’s Health Theme Group was also active on a number of other critical issues: supporting a national non-communicable disease conference; promoting the ‘healthy cities’ concept; disseminating new global strategies on diet and nutrition; pushing forward a tobacco-free initiative; holding a seminar and launching a paper on food safety (many of the recommendations of which have now been taken up by Government); providing strong support to China’s 4th National Health Services Survey; and joint testing of new, integrated models for maternal and child health services following a joint UN and Government review. Though China’s progress on education has been such that it is now less a focus of joint UN work, the UN nonetheless supported an important National Education for All Forum.

Under UNDAF Outcome 3 (Environmental Sustainability), a major focus has been the implementation of the new $12m China Climate Change Partnership Framework’ joint programme, and the ongoing Biodiversity Partnership Framework. As part of the climate change partnership, the UN system is working closely with China to support its work on post-2012 international cooperation. A particular highlight was the official UN-China side event in Poznan in December 2008, at which China presented its thinking on carbon budgets, sectoral approaches to greenhouse gas reduction, and technology transfer.

The centerpiece of work under UNDAF Outcome 4 (HIV/AIDS) was the ongoing Joint Programme. At the end of 2008 this underwent an external assessment in preparation for its next two year workplanning cycle. Under the Programme, in 2008 a civil society network on AIDS was launched, guidelines for the introduction of second-line ARVs were developed, and a comprehensive Response Management Information System (CRMIS) was operationalized.

Under UNDAF Outcome 5 (China’s role in the world), south-south and sub-regional collaboration and regional initiatives gained new momentum, in part through a new UN Theme Group set up in 2007 which held three important seminars open to Government and the international community in 2008. The International Poverty Reduction Centre became fully operational, providing training to African and Asian countries; the north-east Asia partnership process gained strong political backing from the five participating countries, with Chinese leadership and UN support; and a major China-Africa forum in Tanzania helped leverage greater China-Africa business to business contacts. In the area of human rights, the Country Team sought OHCHR’s assistance in reviewing its joint work, and is now looking forward to following up, particularly in light of China’s recent Universal Periodic Review under the Human Rights Council.

Summary on progress in UN Reform


Progress in UN reform

Both the Government of China and the international community are increasingly looking to the UN to support China on a broad range of strategic, inter-sectoral issues, such as climate change, China’s role in the world, HIV/AIDS, gender, and issues around China’s remaining poor – ethnic minorities, migrants, and basic social service delivery. Given this, and given the large and diverse UN presence in China (22 Agencies and 700 staff), the UNCT has moved forward with as many of the essential elements of the ‘Delivering as One’ agenda as possible. As a result, there has been an accelerating process of change, both in the architecture of the UN presence in China, and the collective outcomes the UN has been able to deliver. The highlights of progress made against each of the ‘Four Ones’ are outlined below:

One Programme: In 2008, the UNCT again adopted an annual Strategic ‘One Workplan’, defining a common agenda for the UN’s collective work to operationalize the UNDAF. China’s UNDAF is closely aligned to its own MDG-based national development strategy. The Strategic Workplan drew on the outcomes of the UNDAF Annual Review for 2007, which involved all UN Agencies and their counterparts, and was overseen by Government at Ministerial level.

2008 saw a number of new Joint Programmes on which the Country Team and non-resident Agencies had been working gain approval and begin implementation. Such Joint Programmes now include: the China Gender Facility; Joint UN Programme on AIDS; the Climate Change Partnership Framework; the Biodiversity Partnership Framework; the China Culture and Development Partnership Framework (focused on ethnic minorities); the ‘Protecting and Promoting the Rights of China’s Vulnerable Young Migrants’ programme; and the ‘Preventing and Responding to Domestic Violence in China’ programme.

Besides Joint Programmes, other important elements of the common agenda defined in the Strategic Workplan were taken forward through the revitalized UN China Theme Groups, which have become both mechanisms for overseeing preparation of joint advocacy work, and fora to bring together wider groups of partners, including Government, the international community, private sector and civil society, around key development challenges. A particular achievement this year was the publication of two influential UNCT occasional papers, on food safety issues and on food prices in China.

One Leader: The UNCT has established itself as the principal policy-making body for joint UN work. Each Head of Agency now has a dual role, also serving as Chair or Vice Chair of a Theme Group, for which they are accountable to the UNCT. Each Theme Group has its own workplan, which supports the Country Team Strategic ‘One Workplan’. The Resident Coordinator is the Chair of the new MDG Fund National Steering Committee. All UN staff are, wherever Agency annual appraisal processes allow, assessed on their contributions to joint UN efforts.

One Budget: The financial architecture of the UN in China has been transformed with the arrival of over $25m in new funds for joint programmes secured through global competitive bidding. These are now channeled through one MDG Achievement Fund, overseen by the Country Team and Government counterparts through the National Steering Committee.

One Office: The UN has consolidated its presence in Beijing into a smaller number of compounds, and is negotiating with Government on a UN House. Meanwhile, Agencies have agreed to sign collective long-term contracts with providers of a wide range of support services. A common learning programme for all UN China staff has been established. All UN staff have received ‘UN Cares’ HIV in the workplace orientation. The common security office which oversees all UN China Agencies has ensured that all UN offices are MOSS compliant.

A new UN China website, bringing details of all the Agencies, their work, publications, news, events and procurement and employment opportunities together on one website for the first time, was launched in May 2008, and is already receiving around 2,000 pageviews per day. In parallel, an innovative common UN China intranet, providing a platform for all UN staff to share information, news, and documents, was also rolled out and is being widely used.

Key aspects of the proposed 2009 workplan


Key aspects of the proposed 2009 workplan

The coming year is a particularly critical one for the UN in China, as the Country Team must reach an advanced stage in its work on its next UNDAF. There will be a challenge to sustain and institutionalize much of the progress made, as bilateral donor resources in China continue to decline. Meanwhile, 2009 will represent the 30th anniversary of the UN’s presence in China. The UN Country Team will be holding joint events to mark the anniversary, and producing a joint publication looking back on the achievements of 30 years of UN-China partnership.

As well as implementing the growing number of large, strategic Joint Programmes, the UN and China will collaborate in 2009 on a number of strategic issues. Supporting China’s response to the financial crisis will be a key challenge, and an important focus of the new Annual MDG+ Poverty Day Forum and other events. As health reform moves to pilot implementation, the UN will support Government in demonstrating relevant best practices and monitoring results. On climate change, a new National Human Development Report will be published, and the UN and China will collaborate on a Side Event at the Copenhagen negotiations. And, in November, the next of the triennial China-Africa Forums will be held, this time in Cairo, providing a further opportunity to strengthen the UN-China-Africa relationship. On the operational side, the UNCT will look for final agreement with Government on a UN House, and will further deepen its cooperation, including through the development of a first common Business Continuity Plan.

The Chinese Government requested international assistance for the first time in ten years in response to the 12 May Wenchuan Earthquake.Six agencies (UNICEF, UNDP, UNHCR, WHO, WFP and UNFPA) delivered emergency material assistance to earthquake survivors through the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) totaling US$8,090,286. Assistance included tents, food, water and sanitation supplies, health supplies including for reproductive health, clothes and emergency lights.The UN China Appeal for Wenchuan Earthquake Early Recovery Support ($33.5 million) was launched to address early recovery needs and to ensure smooth transition between relief and reconstruction phases. FAO, ILO, IOM, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNEP, UNESCO, UNFPA, UN-HABITAT, UNICEF, UNIDO, UNV and WHO were participating in the UN China Appeal. Over $18 million was mobilized by year end through contributions from the international community. In addition, each agency provided its own resources. International' Building Back Better' workshop on Post-Earthquake Reconstruction Experiences was convened and co-hosted with Government of China bringing together over 200 participants, including officials from 18 Government Ministries and Commissions and from the three affected provinces along with 22 leading experts and practitioners in post-disaster reconstruction from India, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Japan. United Nations China provided comments to ‘The State Overall Planning for Post-Wenchuan Earthquake Restoration and Reconstruction' solicited by Chinese Government. The comments were compiled after consultation among 21 UN China agencies and international reconstruction experts. The comments focused on sectors such as education, health, vulnerable groups (including ethnic minorities), legal issues, rural and urban housing, public services, employment and environment. In-country coordination was strengthened. UNDMT held regular meetings with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Civil Affairs and Commerce between May and September to coordinate disaster assistance with the Government of China. Over 10 UNDMT meetings were convened during this time to plan and coordinate the relief and early recovery response. The UN in China have been invloved with the international workshop oprganzied by the Government. The UNDMT convened 10 meetings with the international community and private sector groups to share information, coordinate and mobilize funds. 11 situation reports were issued to the international community.
