What We Do
The United Nations Resident Coordinator System in the DPR Korea
The Resident Coordinator is the designated representative of the Secretary-General and leader of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT). The Resident Coordinator is selected by the Secretary-General after consultation with members of the Administrative Committee on Coordination and reports to the Secretary-General. The Resident Coordinator, on behalf of UN agencies and in consultation with UN agencies’ country representatives, assumes overall responsibility for, and coordination of, the operational activities of UN agencies at the country level. This is done by agreement with the host government, and in conformity with the mandates and objectives of the UN agencies.
The UNCT ensures inter-agency coordination and decision-making at the country level. The main purpose of the Country Team is for individual agencies to plan and work together, as part of the Resident Coordinator system, to ensure the delivery of tangible results in support of the government’s development agenda. The Office of the UN Resident Coordinator harmonizes the work of the UN organizations, both resident and nonresident.
