Hanoi Statement charts clear way forward Dao initiative
The Hanoi Statement, issued at a senior-level international conference on the UN’s DaO initiative in Hanoi on June 16, reaffirms that the old way of doing business is no longer an option and calls upon the UN system to institute business and management systems that enhance efficiency and effectiveness in programme countries.
The Statement also calls on the donors to provide multi-year predictable unearmarked funding to programme countries to make the Delivering as One approach in pilot countries credible and also relevant and applicable to all other UN members states in their future development activities.
The United Nations launched the “Delivering as One” pilot initiative in 2007 to respond to the challenges of changing world, and test how the UN family could provide development assistance in a more coordinated and coherent way.
T he DaO approach has been piloted by eight countries including Albania , Cape Verde , Pakistan , Mozambique , Rwanda , Tanzania , Uruguay and Vietnam .
The Hanoi conference brought together more than 260 participants from countries that have adopted the DaO’s approach, as well as donors, several UN agencies, international organisations and diplomatic missions in Vietnam./.
