One Budget

As part of the One Plan, a single budget provides a clear sense of total resources required to implement the One Plan, while the One Plan Fund provides a streamlined way of providing un-earmarked support for the UN's programmatic work and reduces the problem of different UN agencies competing for the same donor funds.The overall budget for the One Plan 2012-2016 is USD480,232,770. At the time of signing, this included USD107,549,500 in regular resources of UN agencies, USD65,954,700 in extra-budgetary funds from all sources and USD306,728,570 to be secured, USD135,387,301 is to be raised through the One Plan, with the remaining USD171,341,269 coming from other resources.

The One Plan Fund II

The One Plan Fund (OPF) is a strategic and important element of the reform process, and a proven mechanism to increase coherence and focus in UN planning and programming. The OPF provides a streamlined way for donors to provide un-earmarked or soft earmarked support for the UN's programmatic work. This reduces competition among UN agencies for the same funding and enables the UN to make strategic decisions on allocation of funds to where the need and potential development impact is greatest. Under One Plan 2012-2016, following an in-depth review of funding proposals by an independent panel, four successful OPF allocation rounds were conducted.It is only possible for the UN to undertake joint short-and long-term strategic prioritization if sufficient and predictable multi-year funding is available. However, the funding environment in Viet Nam is changing rapidly, due to lower levels of ODA globally and the country's graduation to lower middle-income country status. To respond to these changing conditions, the UN is contemplating innovative ways for resource mobilization. The Government of Viet Nam and the UN may also consider a reprioritization of One Plan 2012- 2016 to make sure expected results are aligned with availability of funds

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.


UNIDO Director General's Op-Ed Article to media on the occasion of UNIDO's 50th anniversary


Did you know that in Viet Nam, the net flow of foreign direct investment increased from USD1billion in 2003 to USD10 billion in 2008, and that by 2015 reached USD23 billion?  Or that the total value of exports rose from USD2 billion in 1990 to USD72 billion in 2010, to reach USD162 billion in 2015? These impressive figures highlight the country’s robust economic success, providing a boost to the economy and employment.

These accomplishments are largely due to the reforms undertaken by Viet Nam since Doi Moi in 1986 which liberalized the economy, attracted foreign investment, fostered exports and reduced poverty. To prepare for reform, Viet Nam received extensive technical assistance from the international community, including from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), well before 1986 and, more precisely, since 1978.

For more than 35 years, UNIDO has been sharing international best practices to help Viet Nam develop inclusive and sustainable industry. With more than USD100 million in expenditure, UNIDO’s technical cooperation activities have been carried out across a broad range of fields, including support to the private sector and technical and industrial research organizations, facilitation of technology transfer, trade capacity-building, human resource development, environmental protection, energy efficiency, investment promotion and responsible business practices.
