RC Annual Report


RC Annual Report

The Resident Coordinator system brings together different UN agencies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operational activities at the country level. The Resident Coordinator Annual Report (RCAR) is an essential element of the accountability and results framework for UN operational activities.

The RCAR provides an opportunity for UN Country Teams (UNCTs), under the leadership of the Resident Coordinator (RC), to review their collective results, share good practices in support of national development plans and priorities, improve their planning process and identify the support they need from Headquarters and Regional Directors Teams (RDTs) / UNDG Regional Teams.

The purpose of the RC report is to:

  • Help UNCTs assess progress towards UNCT key planned results/UNDAF coordination results; identify good practices and lessons learned in coordination and common programming; and plan for key planned results in 2010 identifying UNCT contributions to those results as the basis for their performance appraisal to strengthen the mutual accountability for results.
  • Gather specific information and statistics to feed into upcoming debates and events and to provide the Secretary General, ECOSOC and UN member states with information on progress in UN reform.
  • Enable Development Operations Coordinating Office (DOCO) to properly report to donors on the use of the previous year’s funds and to mobilize and allocate the next years Support to Resident Coordinator (SRC) and UN Country Coordination funds (UNCCF).
