Noted that the Committee was engaged in the development of a common system-wide organizational resilience policy, based on the organizational resilience management system developed by the Secretariat and recently approved by the General Assembly. That was in line with the request by the General Assembly to the Secretariat to take steps to expand the organizational resilience management system to the specialized agencies, funds and programmes.
Noted that that system represented a transformative change in United Nations emergency risk management, consistent with the global trend of developing a comprehensive risk management approach to address the significant and diverse risks faced by the Organization.
Expected to strengthen the common understanding of resilience across the United Nations system and the ability of the organizations in it to work together and deliver in even the most difficult circumstances. The latter was seen as also representing a contribution to the fit -for-purpose considerations of the Board.
