In 2011, with the piloting phase of Delivering as One coming to an end, the efforts of the Albanian government, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) and international partners to lay the foundations for a new way of working together showed concrete results, including increased alignment with national priorities, improved joint programming, increased efficiency gains and cost savings. Systems and mechanisms to support Delivering as One, such as the One Programme, One Fund and One Budgetary Framework continued to provide a clear overview of the UN’s work in Albania. This has further increased the ownership of the One UN Programme by the government.
Covering approximately 85 percent of the UN’s development assistance in Albania under the 2007–2011 cycle, the One UN Programme brought together the expertise of fourteen participating agencies, funds and programmes. Combining specific interventions of individual UN agencies and targeted interventions through Joint Programmes (JPs), the One UN Programme achieved concrete results through its implementation, with the UN delivering approximately USD 25million in 2011 and USD 92 million under the 2007–2011 programme cycle.
