THE ‘FUNDS’ PROJECT
The future of the UN development system
What kind of system will be needed after 2020?
The United Nations is probably the best-known organization in the world. The UN Development System and its constituent parts touch a very substantial proportion of the global population as beneficiaries, contributors, employees.
Over the next few years, events and decisions will determine whether the UN Development System goes into decline, or re-emerges as a major force for good and the principal means by which the world will reach its major development goals.
The UN Development System’s role, functioning, performance – and the need for its future existence – should be examined thoroughly in the light of the rapidly changing global environment.
