Operational activities for development

The year 2010 was an important one for all development actors, as it marked the beginning of the countdown to the 2015 deadline to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGS). The UN system continued to deliver development assistance to developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)—the central UN body for technical assistance, in its dual role as the lead development agency and coordinator of the UN development system—saw its income increase to $5.95 billion, and overall expenditures to $5.99 billion. Development assistance was also provided through the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, which funded technical cooperation projects worth some $71.8 million; the United Nations Fund for International Partnerships, with cumulative allocations to projects reaching $1.17 billion; the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), which implemented projects valued at $1.27 billion on behalf of its partners; and the United Nations Capital Development Fund, whose total income increased to $42.3 million, despite a difficult external environment, allowing it to develop new interventions in response to country-level demand.
