United Nations reform

In 1996, in the context of the rapidly evolving world situation, the United Nations was undergoing comprehensive change to meet new and emerging problems and tackle persistent problems in new ways. Institutional reform continued on three levels: intergovernmental, organizational and managerial. Reform was high on the Secretary-General’s agenda, as well as on the agenda of the intergovernmental machinery, in particular through the work programme of the General Assembly. Five working groups of the Assembly were addressing major aspects of reform.
