It covers a wide range of issues and major development trends, with a focus on issues related to national priorities and to the goals, targets and comments defined by various UN initiatives, functions and organizations.

The Results-Based Management (RBM) Policy seeks to establish a clear and agreed vision of RBM at UNFPA. Its purpose is to foster a culture of measurement and results at UNFPA, creating a demand for and improve usage of credible information and evidence on results to inform decision-making. The Policy communicates how RBM can work as a management approach and defines clear roles and responsibilities. It also spells out what accountability for results means at UNFPA, including accountability in respect to results shared with partners in the context of the United Nations reform and United Nations Development Group (UNDG) guidelines.
