Results Based Management at UNFPA
UNFPA is committed to achieving three ambitious, people-centred transformative results by 2030. These transformative results are:
1. Ending preventable maternal deaths;
2. Ending the unmet need for family planning; and
3. Ending gender-based violence and all harmful practices, including female genital mutilation and child, early and forced marriage.
With just a few years remaining to the 2030 deadline for achieving the transformative results, there is a need to inject a sense of urgency into the process. In order to do so, UNFPA requires its managers and staff to: (a) be guided by results; (b) accelerate the implementation of interventions; (c) go beyond “business as usual”; and (d) enhance partnerships and move towards joint accountability.
To support these efforts, UNFPA must enhance and strengthen results-based management (RBM) within the organization by shifting the focus to learning — a key aspect of RBM.
To realise this vision, RBM at UNFPA is structured as 3 core principles and 5 supporting principles.
