One UN Programme United Nations Rwanda Report 200801 Mar 2009
2008 was the first year of the implementation of the One UN Programme or the Common Operational Document, which is still unique in the world. For the first time a United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) was operationalized into a One UN Programme highlighting all activities that the UN will implement to support the national priorities.
All UN agencies have worked hard in 2007 to finalize the One UN Programme and make it ready for its implementation by the beginning of 2008.
2008 was a year full of challenges since this was the firstyear UN agencies worked to such an extent together in the planning, implementation and monitoring of all UN activities. This report will help to understand these challenges but will more explicitly highlight the lessons learned and how we use these lessons learned for the implementation of the One UN Programme in 2009.
