» Tirana Conference
On 27-29 June 2012, Government representatives from more than 40 programme countries, along with representatives from development partners, and UN met in Tirana for the V High Level Intergovernmental Conference on Delivering as One. The Tirana Conference marked an important milestone in the UN reform process to bring about a more coherent, efficient and effective United Nations development system.
The Conference provided an important opportunity to draw on the overall outcomes, achievements, challenges and lesson learned related to the Delivering as One approach, as the pilot phase came to completion. It also constituted a timely opportunity to provide recommendations for the General Assembly’s 2012 Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review of UN operational activities for development.
The Conference successfully approved an Outcome Document that stressed the critical need to strengthen, scale-up and sustain the collective efforts of the UN development system. The Outcome Document included in its recommendations the need for the adoption, through a process led by the UN Development Group, of Standard Operational Procedures to enable the effective functioning of the UN Country Teams in the countries that apply the Delivering as One approach.
