Chapter Summary

Since the outset of the sixty-second session, the broad membership has signaled that the continuing efforts on system-wide coherence should focus on four priority areas, namely (a) the United Nations delivering as one at the country level with the related aspect of harmonization of business practices; (b) funding; (c) governance; and (d) gender equality and the empowerment of women. The experience of 'Delivering as one' to date at the country level is clearly and preponderantly positive, even if a number of challenges remain to be fully addressed in regard to each of the 'four ones'. In the context of intergovernmental discussion on system-wide coherence, the Assembly can focus exclusively on priority areas and exclude the issues of environment/environmental governance, humanitarian assistance and human rights.

Keywords: business practices; empowerment of women; funding; gender equality; governance; harmonization; system-wide coherence; UN General Assembly
