The aim of the project was to provide support to UNCTs to use and integrate operations concepts into the programming process in the field. This was found necessary during the joint mission of the HLCM and UNDG to identify bottlenecks to collaboration in the area of operations in Delivering as One. A second phase to enhance implementation of this project has been approved for funding

UNSSC Training

From October 2011 to February 2012, the United Nations System Staff College held three workshops, two in Turin, Italy and one in Bangkok, Thailand, designed for senior operations staff.
