Delivering as One Annual Results Report 2014

With months remaining to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Viet Nam has already achieved or exceeded most of the agreed targets, including those on poverty reduction and primary education. However, as in many other countries in the Asia-Pacific region, the MDG agenda remains unfinished at the sub-national level, while some targets at the national level have still not been reached. Vulnerabilities remain widespread due to chronic deprivation prevalent amongst ethnic minorities and in certain geographic localities. Large parts of the population continue to be engaged in the informal sector and live just above the poverty line, which makes them especially vulnerable to economic or other shocks. At the same time, disasters and extreme climate events risk derailing hard-won development gains.

In order to best help Viet Nam respond to the particular challenges faced by a middleincome country (MIC), the UN continues to transform the nature of its support. Critical areas of UN assistance include upstream policy dialogue and advice to foster more inclusive and green growth, ensure access to quality essential services for all citizens, improve public sector performance and accountability, and expand citizen participation for better governance.

Delivering as One News from the UN in Viet Nam - Oct 2014

As we prepare to move into the environmentallyfriendly Green One UN House, an exciting new chapter of ‘Delivering as One’ reform is being written. Viet Nam is not only breaking new ground in establishing integrated Common Services and a new interagency ‘One ICT’ system, but also in harmonized financial management, procurement and results-based management.

Significant progress is also being made in Delivering on Results. The eight Joint Programming Groups continue to undertake a busy programme of joint activities and with the finalization of the 2013 Annual Results Report, reporting on 2014 results is already underway. One important UN result was the recent award of a provisional Gold rating for the design of the Green One UN House, which will help set new environmental standards for the building industry in Viet Nam.

Delivering as One Annual Results Report 2013

2013 represented the second year of the 2nd generation of the United Nations’ Delivering as One (DaO) initiative in Viet Nam, with a deepened approach across all six of its pillars allowing the Government of Viet Nam and the UN Country Team (UNCT) to remain at the forefront of global level UN reform. The year was marked by the achievement of a number of important DaO milestones.

In particular, the ground-breaking of the Green One UN House (GOUNH) project in Ha Noi to co-locate the majority of UN agencies under one roof and the establishment of a tripartite DaO governance structure to bring 17 UN agencies, the Government of Viet Nam and donor community together to review and ensure implementation of the DaO initiative were major steps forward.

The year also constituted the fi rst full annual cycle of the One Plan 2012-2016. In keeping with the General Assembly Resolution 67/226 on the Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR), joint programming, monitoring and results reporting across the UN system in Viet Nam were reinforced through the implementation of the Results-Based Management (RBM) Strategy for Delivering as One in Viet Nam 2012-2016. This ‘Delivering as One Annual Results Report 2013’ is the culmination of these efforts.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.

The secretary-general's message for the International Day to End Violence against Women and Girls

 

25 November 2016 - At long last, there is growing global recognition that violence against women and girls is a human rights violation, public health pandemic and serious obstacle to sustainable development.  Yet there is still much more we can and must do to turn this awareness into meaningful prevention and response.
