UN restructuring and institutional matters

In 2006, the Secretary-General presented further reform proposals aimed at significantly re-orienting the management and operation of the Organization in the execution of its mandates. In a report entitled “Investing in the United Nations: for a stronger Organization worldwide”, the Secretary-General proposed further measures to enable future Secretaries-General to carry out their managerial responsibilities effectively and to make better use of the Organization’s managerial and human resources. He also created a High-level Panel on United Nations System-wide Coherence to help find ways to effect a more coherent and effective response to the needs of Member States.
