e-Launch of Pulling Together: The Multilateral Response to Climate Change

2015 marked a historic year for multilateral mobilisation on climate—but 2021 is a make or break year for implementing the climate agenda. MOPAN’s most recent study, Pulling Together: The Multilateral Response to Climate Change, in the series Lessons in Multilateral Effectiveness, identifies the key factors affecting the multilateral system in addressing the uneven progress that has been made since the Paris Agreement on advancing SDG 13. The report reviews how multilateral organisations and the multilateral system are responding to climate change within the context of the Paris Agreement and SDG13, at global and country level.

e-Launch of Lessons in Multilateral Effectiveness - Is this time different? UNDS Reform: Progress, challenges and opportunities

The UNDS reforms have been a demanding undertaking for the UNDS entities, UN Secretariat, and Member States alike as they strive toward a more coherent, cohesive, and better positioned United Nations Development System (UNDS) to support delivery of the 2030 Agenda. As Member States consider a resolution to take the reforms forward, and in the context of the Secretary General’s comprehensive review of the RC system and its funding, MOPAN is releasing, Lessons in Multilateral Performance - Is this time different? UNDS Reform: progress, challenges, and opportunities. The study provides unique, independent perspective on the UNDS reforms’ progress in select transformation areas, the underlying drivers affecting the reform and associated risks and challenges. It also emphasises immediate areas for attention and further enquiry as the reform continues to evolve.

MOPAN launches SEAH Note for practitioners

MOPAN has created a Note for practitioners to advance understanding on how we can measure how well equipped Multilateral Organisations (MOs) are in preventing and addressing sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and sexual harassment (SH). The Note presents MOPAN’s recently introduced 16 SEA/SH indicators, contained in the MOPAN 3.1 Methodology, which build on international norms and best practice, including the DAC Recommendation on Ending sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment. The Note also features a new MOPAN+ SEAH Toolkit, furthering the 16 indicators with 24 more granular measures at the corporate level for addressing sexual misconduct. Prevention and response to SEA and SH are crucial for organisational performance and have therefore become an integral part of MOPAN’s performance assessments of MOs.
