In July 1997, the Secretary-General of the United Nations launched a reform agenda to create a more effective and efficient United Nations.1 This led to the creation of the United Nations Development Group (UNDG), whose aim is to coordinate, harmonize and align United Nations development activities, particularly at the country level in order to deliver more coherent, effective and efficient support to governments.2 Common Country Assessments (CCA) and United Nations Development Assistance Frameworks (UNDAF) were developed to support this effort and were intended to promote joint programming among United Nations agencies. Joint programmes were seen as a relevant means to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the United Nations system by harnessing the comparative advantages of agencies in a coordinated manner. The importance of joint programming for United Nations reform efforts was reiterated by the Secretary General in 2002 and again in November 2006 when the Secretary General’s High Level Panel on System Wide Coherence in the Areas of Development,Humanitarian Assistance and the Environment (HLP)3 released its report, which launched the Delivering as One (DaO) initiative to further United Nations reform at the country level.4 That same year, the Government of Spain established the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund (MDG-F) that provided US$ 705 million to improve United Nations effectiveness mainly by providing additional resources for joint programming to promote more coherent United Nations support for MDGs at the country level, including a specific programmatic window on gender equality and women’s empowerment. In 2008, United Nation General Assembly TCPR Resolution emphasized the importance of joint pogramming urging the United Nations development system “to fully utilize such opportunities in the interest of enhancing aid efficiency and aid effectiveness”. These developments led to an increase in the overall number of joint programmes initiated, including those with specific objectives on gender equality and women’s empowerment. At the same time, the HLP’s Delivering as One report also found that despite the United Nations system’s key role in supporting governments to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment, its contributions in this area had been incoherent, under-resourced and fragmented.
