The UN Resident Coordinator Office

Under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinator (RC), who leads the UN Country Team (UNCT) in Armenia and coordinates all UN operations at the country level, the UN Resident Coordinator Office (RCO) provides strategic coordination support to the UNCT.

Its purpose is to maximize the work of the United Nations so that the system can provide a collective, coherent and integrated response to national priorities and needs, within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The overall framework for the coordination of the UN operational activities at the country level is the Common Country Analysis (CCA) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF), an overarching strategy framework for all the UN entities working in the country that is framed around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is in line with the national priorities.

  1. strategic planning;
  2. development economics;
  3. partnerships and development finance;
  4. data and results management and reporting;
