10 February 2020, New York, USA – This year, UNITAR Office in New York, the Permanent Mission of Switzerland, and the United Nations Department of Economics and Social Affairs (UNDESA) will present 5-module “Realizing the Future We Want – Training series in preparation for the General Assembly’s 2020 Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR) of the operational activities for development of the United Nations system” from March to September 2020.
UNITAR Office in New York has previously organized the QCPR trainings in 2012 and 2016. The trainings were catered for the needs of New York based diplomats, second committee delegates, and ECOSOC delegates. These former trainings have provided participants with comprehensive understandings on the QCPR’s decision-making process.
The Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR) is the mechanism through which the General Assembly assesses the effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and impact of the United operational activities for development, and it establishes system-wide policy orientations for operational activities for development and country-level modalities of the UN. The first module of this series, “The QCPR and the repositioning of the UN development system” will take place on Thursday, 26 March 2020. This module would provide an introduction to the Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR), including the repositioning of the UN development system. The 2020 QCPR will guide operational activities for development over the next four years. This module will also provide some food for thought for how Member States relate the QPCR to the Decade of Action launched by Member States to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
