Mutual Accountability Framework

The One UN for Afghanistan (2018 – 2021) paper outlines the need for a mutual accountability framework between the Government and the UN and continues to encourage the support, engagement, and lead of the Development Councils in this regard. The ‘delivering as one’ approach will ensure effective coordination by reducing duplication, cutting costs and promoting accountability.

The UN stands ready to develop such a framework, including benchmarks (to measure progress towards each identified outcome), under the lead of the government. The mutual accountability framework will provide time-bound commitments from both the UN and the Government to achieve different outcomes and results, aligned to national priorities.
