As agreed in the road map for the implementation of the management and accountability system of the United Nations Development Group and resident coordinator system, the Group commissioned a review in 2010 to assess progress made and identify gaps in its implementation. The review, which is expected to be completed in mid-2011, will result in a set of recommendations for the way forward to ensure full implementation of the system.
