The QCPR is the mechanism through which the General Assembly assesses the effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and impact of UN operational activities for development and establishes system-wide policy orientations for the development cooperation and country-level modalities of the UN system in response to the evolving international development and cooperation environment.
The QCPR is the primary policy instrument of the General Assembly to define the way the UN development system operates to support programme countries in their development efforts.
The General Assembly adopted on 21 December 2012 a landmark resolution (67/226) on the QCPR of UN operational activities for development. The resolution is the culmination of two months of intensive intergovernmental negotiations underpinned by comprehensive analytical preparations supported by DESA and UN system entities.
Since 1980, the comprehensive policy review has been conducted every three years. In 2008, Member States decided to change the comprehensive policy review (formerly the Triennial Comprehensive Policy Review-TCPR) to a quadrennial cycle, notably to ensure that the review guides the development of strategic plans of UN system organizations.
