How does UNDEF work with other UN entities?

Dec 14, 2012

The Fund attempts to complement existing activities, and respond to requests that go beyond the reach of existing mechanisms. It works closely with other UN bodies to ensure coordination. 

In order to do so, one of the key actors of the UNDEF's governance structure is the Programme Consultative Group (PCG). The PCG is composed of representatives from the UN Department of Political Affairs, the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the UN Development Fund for Women, the UN Development Programme, the UN Development Group, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights giving substantive and scientific advice to the UNDEF Office and the Advisory Board on project proposals and funding criteria.
