Participatory Monitoring for Accountability in Viet Nam


In 2012, the United Nations launched a global conversation on the Post-2015, Development Agenda, to listen to the voices of the people on the future that they want to see. 83 countries, including Viet Nam, were selected for national consultations. The Viet Nam country consultations focused on eight groups and culminated in a consultation workshop on the 20th of March 2013. These consultations engaged over 1300 Vietnamese people, and even more voted on the issues most important to them on the ‘My World’ website.

The second round of Post-2015 Global consultations focused on ‘Means of Implementation’ for the new global development framework. Viet Nam was one of ten countries to select the theme of “Participatory Monitoring, Existing and New Forms of Accountability”. This theme links with the overarching message of the first round of consultations which was the people’s aspiration to play an active role in decision- and policy-making processes. People-led monitoring for accountability can provide a means both of empowering people to articulate their priorities, while also taking greater decision-making control over their lives.

UNDG Results-Based Management Handbook

The UNDG Results-Based Management (RBM) Handbook intends to provide UN funds, programmes and specialized agencies with common ground for supporting national programme planning, implementation monitoring and reporting based on best practices in the RBM field. The Handbook explains concepts and tools in ways that will facilitate operationalizing harmonized RBM approaches. It provides a common denominator for the use of RBM by all United Nations staff members and stakeholders, particularly when developing and implementing their United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). Key concepts, principles and terminology are presented along with different frameworks, such as a results matrix, a risk mitigation framework and a results-based reporting framework.

UNEG Standards for Evaluation in the UN System

The standards build upon the UNEG Norms for Evaluation in the UN system. They are drawn from best practice of UNEG members. They are intended to guide the establishment of the institutional framework, management of the evaluation function, conduct and use of evaluations. They are also a reference for the competencies of evaluation practitioners and work ethics, and are intended to be applied as appropriate within each organization. UNEG will periodically update, elaborate and expand the coverage of these standards in the service of the UN system organizations.

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.
