Improving global governance
Posted Sep 26, 2017 | Center on International Cooperation, Sarah Cliffe

The UN’s bureaucracy, and its financial and human resource management practices, has generated little interest. However, reforms are now being pressed on the Secretary-General’s agenda, in particular by U.S. announcements on cuts to UN contributions. In this paper for the Center on International Cooperation, Sarah Cliffe suggests that the UN’s processes for management of people and funds are core to its difficulties in responding to challenges. She identifies four strategically important and practical measures to address these problems: Eliminate duplicative internal controls; simplify budgets radically; respond quicker to evolving conditions; and strengthen transparency and accountability.
