The global communities the UN system serves have become more sophisticated in their information needs and the organizations’ information content and the means by which it is delivered often seem inadequate and outdated to younger and other intended mass audiences.

HLCM, in a complementary and coordinated effort with HLCP and UNDG, aims to develop the skills and capacity to leverage technology and adopt more direct, emphatic and compelling approaches to communication, including investments on data visualization tools to leverage the UN’s high value digital data resources, so as to more effectively tell the story of the UN system.

Concurrently, HLCM will pursue the development of common methodologies for measuring performance and calculating efficiencies, as well demonstrating that achieved productivity increases and realized operational savings have been translated into increased resources for the implementation of programmatic activities.
