Le Secrétaire général António Guterres lance avec succès les réformes radicales de l’ONU le 1er janvier 2019

Le Secrétaire général souligne comment les réformes vont transformer le travail des Nations Unies. « Les objectifs de la réforme sont clairs : Se concentrer plus sur les personnes et moins sur les processus. Devenir plus souple et efficace. Et créer un environnement de travail de qualité, empreint de diversité et d’intégrité. »


The UN MEDEVAC Mechanism serves as an example of a successful One UN partnership between numerous entities to design, resource, and implement a system-wide medical evacuation framework in the face of the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to ensure that a high standard model of care, safety, and treatment options are available to all UN personnel, partners, and their dependents so that they may continue to serve and deliver in their duty locations.

The global human resources strategy of 2019-21 set a goal to become “simplified, decentralized, flexible, and field-oriented” in order to drive strategic human resources management and empower managers. 

Then COVID-19 exposed an overreliance on physical paperwork and signatures in our human resource management. Adopting electronic signatures and migrating paper-based forms into digital systems will help the United Nations strengthen its ability to manage human resources in an ever-changing world.

It might seem like critical situations or incidents should be second nature in the United Nations, yet sometimes capacities are stretched beyond any norm or barriers to reallocation of resources put up obstacles. As part of management reform, a dedicated capacity in the Department of Operational Support was created to support the start-up, surge, or closure of Secretariat entities, as well as to better respond to critical incidents.
