Working Group on Programming Issues

The WG develops policies, guidelines and tools to improve the quality and effectiveness of UN country team programme collaboration which better supports national efforts to achieve internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals. The working group harmonizes and simplifies joint programming instruments such as the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and related programming documents and procedures; supports the UN system’s progress toward aid effective commitments; and advises country teams on how to incorporate key principles in results-based management, capacity development, human rights-based approaches, gender equality, and environmental sustainability, into the UN’s programme framework at the country level.
