United Nations Member States have decided to fundamentally transform the development coordination system to support countries in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopting General Assembly resolution A/RES/72/279 for a reinvigorated Resident Coordinator (RC) system, empowered and impartial to be fully dedicated to coordinating the development activities of UN entities as of 1 January 2019.

Member States subsequently endorsed the transformation of the United Nations Development Coordination Office (UNDCO) as a stand-alone coordination office within the United Nations Secretariat to manage and oversee the RCS under the collective ownership of the UNSDG, an internal mechanism that comprises United Nations agencies, funds and programmes working on development issues.

In this capacity, the UN Development Coordination Office (DCO) manages and oversees the RCS under the collective ownership of the UN Sustainable Development Group (UNSDG), an entity that comprises all UN agencies, funds and programmes working on development issues. DCO supports the Chair of the UNSDG and the RCS in overseeing the global UNSDG website in the six official languages and more than 130 websites of UN country teams (UNCTs) around the world, including the DCO website and the UNCT eReports.
