Joint Responsibilities in a World of Disarray
The Financing the UN Development System annual report themed Joint Responsibilities in a World of Disarray is a partnership initiative between the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the United Nations Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office. The eighth edition is published when the United Nations system is coping with multiple complex challenges, including recovering from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, conflicts and climate crises.
Our main objectives of the website are to give an overview of how UN resources are generated, allocated and used, while providing a vibrant marketplace of ideas from a wide range of authors. Experts from international financial institutions, the UN system and academia share their perspectives on ways to ensure adequate financing and funding quality that can help in realising the Sustainable Development Goals, preventing conflict, and meeting humanitarian and planetary needs.
