CEB Updates ECOSOC on Post-2015 Work, Strategic Plans

CEB6 May 2013: In a briefing to the UN Economic and Social Council, Thomas Stelzer, Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB), shared key points from the Board's report to the first regular session for 2013, which took place in Madrid, Spain, earlier this year.

On the post-2015 development agenda, Stelzer said the Board is engaged in enhancing UN system coherence and coordination in support of reaching a common understanding on the new agenda. With a view to achieving internationally agreed development goals, he said the Board also is actively addressing the mainstreaming of the rule of law in the activities of the wider UN system, as well as supporting the development of a system-wide plan of action.

Stelzer also outlined the Strategic Plan of the High-Level Committee on Management (HLCM) for 2013-2016, which includes support for the second-generation of “Delivering as One.” He added that the UN Development Group (UNDG) work plan for 2013-2016 is fully aligned with the Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR), which guides the Board's work.
