A New Way of Working Together for the 2030 Agenda


United Nations Member States decided to fundamentally transform the development coordination system to better enable the UN teams to support countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With a reinvigorated, empowered and independent resident coordinator (RC) system at its helm, the function is fully dedicated to coordinating the development activities of UN entities as of 1 January 2019, helping to ensure sustained social, economic and environmental gains at the national and local levels, while leaving no one behind. To capture the development coordination system at country, regional and global levels, the Development Coordination Office (DCO) has created a short two-pager.
