Managing for results

Print Email

 

The 2010 Country-Led and 2011 Global Independent Evaluations of DaO emphasised the need for a "clear base of evidence" that DaO is working. In 2012 the UN General Assembly increased organizational commitment to manage for results, including 'One UN' results reporting. General Assembly Resolution 67/226 calls for a more strategic and coherent results culture across the entire UN system, driven by interventions based on clear and robust results frameworks.

In finalizing the One UN RBM strategy in 2012 the UN in Viet Nam has laid a strong foundation for more effective management of DaO results.

The strategy

The Results-Based Management Strategy provides the Resident Coordinator, the UN Country Team, UN staff, and national and international partners with the overall approach to manage for One Plan and Delivering as One results. This includes institutional arrangements, frameworks and tools for improved effectiveness and efficiency.

The strategy is guided by a framework of expected changes from DaO implementation. The framework describes the main elements of DaO in Viet Nam, and how they reinforce one another to make an effective contribution to the strengthening of national ownership and capacity and the achievement of national priorities.

A renewed focus on managing for results is already contributing to stronger results reporting, evidence-based decision-making with partners, and growing mutual accountability.

Achievements

The RBM Strategy for DaO in Viet Nam is enabling:

  • Stronger, more consistent joint planning, monitoring and reporting about actual One Plan and other DaO Pillar performance against planned results and indicators.
  • Increased attention to demonstrating results for complex outcomes related to policy advice and advocacy and vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.
  • Improved efforts to tell credible 'contribution stories' in plain language about how UN-supported results are making a difference in people's lives.
  • Strengthened evaluation of the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of One Plan results and the Delivering as One approach.
  • Increased generation of knowledge products such as lessons and good practices from programme performance, and sharing with UN and One Plan Stakeholders.
  • Use of evidence about the performance of the One Plan and other DaO Pillars to engage more regularly and effectively with government partners and donors, and to make adjustments to strategy, results and resources.
  • Strengthened capacity of UN staff and partners to manage for One Plan results:
  • Use of the One Plan Database as a dynamic tool to monitor and report on performance

One Plan Database

The One Plan Database is a tailor-made, web-based tool built to monitor and report on all One Plan results with inputs of Joint Programming Groups. The Database is tracking progress over the full period of the One Plan, informing improved decision-making.The database is used to consolidate, track and share information about changes in quantitative and qualitative indicators. It includes information about targets, means of verification and provides comments from UN staff on issues such as the source and quality of data.

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.
