CEB: Conclusions 23.02.2017

Throughout 2014, under the leadership of the Secretary-General as Chair of CEB, the Board contributed to efforts by the UN system to enhance coordination and coherence across a range of programmatic, management and operational issues in support of inter-governmental mandates and priorities.

CEB: Coordination between the Chief Executives Board and other jointly financed bodies 23.02.2017

CEB and the Joint Inspection Unit continued to collaborate, particularly during the preparation of reports by the Joint Inspection Unit with a system-wide focus. During 2014, consultations between the Joint Inspection Unit and the CEB took place on a regular basis. For example during the drafting of the JIU report on a "System-wide review of results-based management - phase II" the CEB Secretariat shared all the documentation, training material and tools produced by the Results-Based Management Community of Practice of the High-Level Committee on Management.

CEB: Improving and innovating administrative and management functions of the United Nations system 23.02.2017

The High-level Committee on Management strategic plan for 2013-2016 identifies harmonization and simplification of business practices as a core activity. In this context, the plan focuses on common and shared services, including improved common procurement practices, and other initiatives to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the United Nations system.

CEB: Establishment of a United Nations system-wide evaluation mechanism 23.02.2017

The United Nations Evaluation Group had prepared a proposal for the joint High Level Committee on Programmes-High-level Committee on Management spring session 2007 concerning the establishment of a United Nations system-wide evaluation mechanism linked to CEB to fill the current gap concerning evaluation of system-wide processes. It was stressed that such a mechanism must be independent in order to be credible and must at the same time meet the priority needs of its stakeholders.

CEB: “One United Nations” at the country level 23.02.2017

CEB considered that a principal determinant of the United Nations system’s image in donor as well as recipient countries was its work at the country level. The system could not, therefore, afford to be perceived as a disparate group of competing organizations. CEB members should instead strive to work as a coherent  system devoted to bringing its diverse capacities to bear, in a concerted way, on the priorities defined by developing countries. How best to harness the limited resources available to United Nations organizations to maximize their impact remained a major challenge.

CEB: Cross-cutting issues 23.02.2017

During the reporting period, the High Level Committee on Programmes and the High-level Committee on Management continued the innovative practice of joint meetings that they had begun in 2006 in order to address cross-cutting issues from both a programme and a management perspective. Those meetings were intended to address major emerging issues relevant to the work of both committees that were of importance across the work of the United Nations system.

CEB: Evaluation 23.02.2017

At its 2007 spring session, the Chief Executives Board endorsed the recommendation for an evaluation of the eight pilot projects carried out at the country level under the One United Nations initiative and gave the United Nations Evaluation Group the task of establishing the substantive parameters and process for the evaluation. In response to that request, the United Nations Evaluation Group envisaged a three-stage process, as follows:

CEB: Enhanced cooperation with inter-agency bodies 23.02.2017

CEB dedicated considerable effort to strengthening its relationship and improving cooperation with other inter-agency mechanisms of the United Nations system, such as the International Civil Service Commission, the representatives of internal audit services of the United Nations system and the Joint Inspection Unit.

CEB: Collaboration with the Joint Inspection Unit 23.02.2017

With the Joint Inspection Unit having increasingly included issues with system-wide impact in its work programme, the reporting period saw a closer collaboration between CEB and the Unit. A comprehensive CEB-led exercise assisted in the identification of relevant topics for the Unit’s programme of work. CEB also worked closely with the Unit in the preparation of several of its reports, acting as both an expert subject-matter adviser and a facilitator of input from organizations on the content of the report.

CEB: Contribution of the United Nations system to the Economic and Social Council 23.02.2017

The High-level Committee on Programmes considered the possibilities for strengthening the engagement of the United Nations system in the work of the Economic and Social Council, stressing the need to define approaches and develop modalities to engage the organizations of the system in a real dialogue with the Council.

CEB: Campaign to end violence against women and girls 23.02.2017

The Board was informed of the UNite to end violence against women campaign, which had been launched by the Secretary-General on 25 February 2008 with the overall objective of increasing public awareness, political will and resources for preventing and responding to violence against women and girls. The campaign provided a common framework for the United Nations system and its partners to address the scourge of violence at the global, regional and national levels.

Building on the successful pilot of a United Nations system global contact directory, this system became operational during the reporting period, with organizations joining to make their contact information available using the jointly managed secure and sustainable platform.

CEB: Enhancing the contribution of the United Nations system to the Economic and Social Council 23.02.2017

The organizations of the United Nations system work together within the context of the mandates provided to them by Member States and under the direct oversight of their respective governing bodies.
