The UNDG Chair, Ms. Helen Clark, opened the second UNDG meeting of 2016 by noting that the midpoint of the year presented a timely opportunity for the UNDG to reflect on the results achieved to date and to determine the priorities for the second half of the year. The UNDG Chair noted that the UNDG had been pursuing two overarching priorities - supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, and driving system-wide reform through implementation of the 2012 QCPR and by working with Member States in the context of the ECOSOC Dialogue on the preparations for the 2016 QCPR and the longer-term positioning of the UN development system.

Issues discussed were “The UN We Want for the SDGs” - UNDG Proposals for the 2016 QCPR and the ECOSOC Dialogue on the Longer-term Positioning of the UNDS, UNDG position paper: The Role of UN Business Operations for Enhanced Programme Delivery under the SDGs, Standard Operations Procedures (SOPs) Plan of Action for Headquarters 2016-2017, UNDG Logo Usage Policy.
