Priorités stratégiques de la Suisse et de l'organisation et leur cohérence UNDP is 1 of 15 multilateral priority organisations listed in the Federal Dispatch on International Cooperation 2017-2020. UNDP’s priorities are linked with the goal on poverty eradication of the Federal Dispatch as well as the focus on fragility. UNDP contributes to Switzerland’s commitments to the 2030 Agenda, in particular SDG 1, 10 and 16. It also leads on the reform of the coordination function of the UN Development System which responds to the Swiss prioritiy of making the UN system more effective and efficient. UNDP is the most important partner for bilateral engagements of SDC at country level
Résultats de l'engagement déployé à ce jour par l'organisation In 2016 UNDP achieved 75% or more of total results expected by 2017. Among key results at global level, UNDP created 2 million new jobs for women and men and 12 million strengthened livelihoods for men and women. UNDP electoral support led to registration of 75 million voters and participation of 290’00 women candidates. In Syria, Iraq and Yemen, UNDP reached over 5 million people with early recovery initiatives. UNDP’s organisational effectiveness has improved, especially since the adoption of a new balance scorecard and a revised evaluation policy.
Résultats de l'engagement déployé à ce jour par la Suisse Switzerland engaged in ensuring UNDP’s implementation of the Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR) and in the elaboration of the new Strategic Plan. Switzerland prioritises conflict prevention, rule of law, governance and institutional effectiveness in its institutional dialogue with UNDP. Key results from this dialogue are the establishment of four thematic funding windows including on conflict prevention and fragility. With Swiss support, UNDP developed a balance scorecard and it introduced the International Aid Transparency Index. UNDP strengthened its evaluation function taking into account Swiss suggestions, in particular increased independence and a resource target for the evaluation office. Furthermore, UNDP improved the transparency of reporting on cost recovery.
