One UN

The United Nations in Ethiopia is one of the 'self starters' UN systems in the world to pilot the Delivering as One (DaO) reform. Since 2008, UN in Ethiopia has been developing new ways of working under strong leadership of the Government to achieve a greater impact on the ground by being more results oriented, efficient and harmonising business practices across agencies.


Overall guidance to the Delivering as One process is provided by a High-level Steering Committee, co-chaired by the UN Resident Coordinator and the Ethiopian Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED), with representatives from the UNCT, Government ministries and donor agencies.


Delivering as One comprises five elements:

One Programme, One Budgetary Framework and One Fund, One Leader, One Office, One Voice.
