One UN - Pakistan

At the core of UN reform is the desire to help the organization work more effectively. In development, this means promoting greater coordination, cooperation, and efficiency between the many agencies that specialize in different parts of the human development puzzle. The "One UN" initiative is a collaborative effort combining all UN agencies in the country to work together under one country leader, with one country plan, and in one shared country office. Pakistan is the largest county with a pilot "One UN" office.

By having one central control with all UN agencies representing the Pakistani government and the UN can work more closely together to reach their goals. The funds from all UN agencies combined will equal around 300 million dollars to create sustainable development, with a focus on: Health, Education, Poverty Reduction, HIV & AIDS and Disaster Management.
