With this implementation overview, we have tried to strike a balance between background information, updates on developments in the second quarter 2014, information on the specific support from the UNDP facility as well as the impact of this support.
The third quarter of 2014 continued to see progress in implementation of the New Deal at country level as well as on the global level with support from the UNDP facility. As before, this overview is divided in country sections, and a section on global support.
The UNDP New Deal facility is now well into its second year of operation, and there is a lot of exciting activity across a range of fronts. This quarterly report covers both Q2 and Q3, due to a temporary hiatus caused by staff changes within UNDP/RCO.
