The Resident Coordinator (RC) system encompasses all organizations of the United Nations system dealing with operational activities for development, regardless of their formal presence in the country. The RC system aims to bring together the different UN agencies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operational activities at the country level.
Working closely with national governments, the Resident Coordinator and UN Country Team advocate the interests and mandates of the UN system while drawing on the support and guidance of the entire UN family. Coordinating development operations promotes more strategic support for national plans and priorities, makes operations more efficient and reduces transaction costs. This helps the UN to be a more relevant and reliable partner for governments.
The UN supported Government of Pakistan in its determined political will towards expeditiously prioritizing and adopting SDGs within national and local level priorities under the United Nations Sustainable Development Framework for Pakistan (UNSDF), also known as Pakistan One United Nations Programme III (OP III) 2018-2022. The five-year United Nations Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDF) was initiated in Pakistan in year 2018. The UNSDF/OP III’s planned results focus on ten key outcome areas that respond to Pakistan’s development priorities and harness the powerful force of the United Nations’ comparative advantage in these areas. These were identified through an intensive consultation process with national and provincial authorities, alongside other implementing partners and stakeholders in the country. These key outcomes and their anticipated results serve as a framework for taking stock of progress, and of the effectiveness of the collaborative work carried out by the United Nations and the Government of Pakistan. They are expected to provide the people of Pakistan with a
fuller range of choices and opportunities, promoting their human development and – in the words of Agenda 2030 – helping them to fulfil “their potential in dignity, equality and in a healthy environment.”
