This conference discussed the following:

  • Do the 30 agencies and organisations of the UN development system still give value for money in the new development cooperation environment?
  • With the emergence of alternatives to UN assistance, how should the system of international organisations adapt to new realities?
  • What criteria should be used to judge performance?
  • How and why is the UN system falling ‘short’?
  • How can the UN system move effectively to ’delivering as one’?
  • How relevant are the traditional UN development roles of norm-setting, global policy-making, research and analysis and technical assistance?
  • Why has UN reform been so slow?
