
Well-conceived joint interventions based on common goals and
comparative advantages of individual actors lead to greater
impact at smaller costs (e.g. HIV/AIDS, EFA, trafficking in human
beings);
Genuine national ownership – a key to success;
Sustainability of interventions needs to be paid more attention to
in order to ensure longer-term impact;
More work is required on improving the measurement of results
and ways to assess impact on the development situation in the
country;
Continuous information sharing between members of the UNCT,
with the Government and other donors is an important task that
requires more rigorous efforts.
