UN Country Pilot Scheme

Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development when the expansion of the One UN country pilot scheme to a further 30 states is expected to start. (213247)

The President of the General Assembly has asked for a report on progress in the eight One UN country pilots. We expect the report to be discussed in the coming weeks. Following this, we do not expect that there will be a formal timetable for an expansion of the One UN country pilots. Instead, developing countries that wish to adopt a ‘delivering as one’ approach are expected to do so as they agree new development assistance frameworks with the UN. In addition other countries, such as Malawi, are already coming forward to adopt principles of good practice from the One UN pilots.
