The UNDG Chair, Ms. Helen Clark, opened the third UNDG meeting of the year by recognizing Ms. Flavia Pansieri who will be retiring from her position as Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights and Vice-Chair of the UNDG at the end of the year. The members of the UNDG joined the UNDG Chair in thanking Ms. Pansieri for her leadership and contributions within the UNDG and throughout her accomplished UN career.

Following the recent reform of the UNDG membership criteria in support of a UN development system that stands united to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, the UNDG Chair announced that all UN entities that had become newly eligible had accepted the invitation to join the UNDG as observers.
