One Plan 2006 - 2010

Print Email

oneunsigning_03The One Plan seeks to combine and synthesize the work of the 14 resident UN organizations in Viet Nam – namely FAO, IFAD, ILO, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNFPA, UN-HABITAT, UNIDO, UNESCO, UNICEF, UNIFEM, UNODC, UNV and WHO – within a single planning framework to better support the Socio-Economic Development Plan (2006-2010) of Viet Nam and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. The One Plan brings greater programmatic coherence, greater synergies and helps the UN respond better to key national priorities. It presents the development challenges, the programme outcomes, outputs and expected results, implementing strategies, management responsibilities, and commitments of the Government and the participating UN Organizations.(Click here to download the One Plan for 2006-2010)

Since the signing of the (revised) One Plan in June 2008, the UNCT has moved forward on implementation, monitoring and resourcing. To put the One Plan into action, a One Plan Management Plan (OPMP) has been finalized and agreed upon by all participating agencies. The OPMP has been established to outline how the UN Organizations participating in the One UN Initiative in Viet Nam will organize themselves in the most effective way so as to successfully implement the One Plan and other key elements of the "One UN Initiative".

Under the OPMP, Programme Coordination Groups (PCGs) have been established as an effective and inclusive mechanism for UN Agencies to work together with each other and with partners on key shared issues such as HIV and AIDS, social and development policies, education and governance. The PCGs, will, among other things, coordinate the implementation of a specific set of outputs from the One Plan. The OPMP also stresses the use of common services as another way of doing things better, and more cheaply. Common services are joint operational arrangements, in areas like travel and accommodation services, banking, security, administrative and financial procedures, procurement, recruitment, joint training and IT support.

Also, in order to better align and harmonize the UN’s planning with Viet Nam’s national development plan for 2011-2015, the UN requested an extension of the current One Plan by one year – through 2011. On 25 August 2009, the extension year was approved in principle by MPI Vice Minister Sinh and on 28 September, the UNDG Asia-Pacific team also approved the request.

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.
