It also looks at the potential for adding value to national initiatives through broader international partnerships through which the United Nations and other international organizations "deliver as one."

This report is a tripartite initiative of the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
